Postponement of Rayleigh Windmill opening for the season

Tuesday, March 17, 2020

Rochford District Council has taken the difficult decision to postpone opening the Rayleigh Windmill to visitors until further notice, due to the current situation regarding the COVID19 pandemic.

The site was due to re-open on 28 March for the spring season. We rely on a team of dedicated volunteers to welcome people to the attraction and we take their safety, and that of our visitors, extremely seriously.

Thank you for your understanding at this time. If you have any queries, please contact the Leisure & Cultural Services Team via or 01702 318120.
