Meopham Windmill

Also known as Killicks Mill

Meopham, Kent

Windmill in Meopham Green
by Hywel Williams 2006

This six-sided windmill, a  'smock' mill was built in 1801 by the Killick brothers, a highly respected Kentish milling family, and is named due to the similarity between the mill outline and the clothing worn by agricultural workers.

The Killicks sold the mill in 1889 and it was the Norton family who were responsible for the mill's switch from being sail driven to engine powered. The windmill ceased to be a working mill in 1965.

It was restored in 2005 by the council and is now open to the public for part of the year.
