Heage Windmill Opening Day

by Amber Valley Info on Saturday 13 April 2019

Heage Windmill has always had a formal opening day when a notable person from the county, or from the mill itself, has declared the mill Open for the season.

This year is no exception and on Saturday April 20th the mill will be ‘opened’ at 11-00am. The opener for 2019 has been unanimously approved by mill management as someone who has supported the mill for many years, particularly in his role as ‘Tractor Day(s) organiser’.  In this role he has helped make these days extremely successful, both for the many tractor owners involved and for the mill itself, which as a result has benefited financially since they always bring large crowds.  

We are therefore delighted to have asked John Allsop, who was born in Heage but now lives in Belper, to be our opener.  He will arrive driving his own Fordson Tractor, just  he has done for so many ‘openers’ in the past – but this time it will be himself  who will declare the mill ‘open’. It is probable that on the day he will be accompanied by some other tractor owners.

As an advance notice there will be a Vintage Tractor Day on Sunday May 5th which John has organised - further information about this will be available nearer the time.

The windmill will be open during 2019 (11-00am to 4-00pm) every weekend from

 April 6th  until the end of October. Large, free, car park!
