Stembridge Tower Mill
Attractions > Attractions
Stembridge Tower Mill has stood in the village of High Ham since 1822. This is the last remaining thatched windmill in England. There were many windmills across the Somerset Levels, but as factories began to mass produce bread the need for such mills and their on-site bakeries declined.
This mill was still grinding local cereals until 1910. All three floors can be viewed via narrow staircases. The top of the mill, which could swivel to maximise windpower, and the thatching remains.
