Keep the sails at Bourn Windmill Turning 

Recent investigations into the structural integrity of Bourn Windmill have shown it is in urgent need of repairs. Cambridge Past, Present and Future with the support of Historic England, are working with external partners to fully assess the extent of the conservation work required to secure the future of Bourn Windmill; a proud feature of the historic Cambridgeshire landscape, a designated Ancient Monument and Grade 1 listed building.

With your help we can keep this iconic windmill preserved for generations to come, we can keep her sails turning.

Our first challenge involves the scaffolding and propping of Bourn Windmill to reduce the risk of the mill collapsing and to enable engineers to understand the full extent of the damage.

Securing the safety of the windmill will cost up to £33,600 and we have received grant funding of £23,520 from Historic England. We need to raise £10,000 to meet the criteria of the grant funding so we are launching the Save Bourn Windmill Appeal this project is a priority for Cambridge Past, Present and Future but we can’t complete this first phase without your support.

£10 will help us fund investigations into the extent of the damage to the Mill

£20 will help us fund the scaffolding required to secure the structure of the Mill

£50 will help us complete the first phase of this critical conservation project
