Brill Windmill in strong winds yesterday

We visited Brill yesterday to fly the DJi Mini and on our arrival changed to the Mavic 2 rather quickly due to the strong winds. Flying time was cut, fortunately the drone made a valiant attempt at putting some footage together. The day wasn’t wasted as we had our still cameras with us - Anne (wife) manged a reasonable collection.


Do you mean it’s a good windmill “brill” (brilliant)
Or is it the place?

​Brill Windmill is a Grade II* listed post mill with 17th century origins on the edge of a hill-top village on the Buckinghamshire/Oxfordshire border. Surrounded by open common land, adjacent to a lively village and with far-reaching views, the windmill is an iconic landmark loved by locals and visitors alike. Owned by Brill Parish Council and managed by The Brill Society, the windmill is usually open to the public Sunday afternoons Easter to September - but, even when we’re not open, there’s still wonderful views, Brill Common and village to explore, and two excellent pubs nearby for refreshment.

The aim of this website is to give a taste of what makes Brill Windmill so special. Browse our gallery of photographs, many taken by visitors over the years, and then, to get a feel for the human history of the windmill, read The Miller’s Tale. The Windmill Blog offers a more personal view whilst our FAQs focus on practical topics; if your question isn’t answered there, please ask! If you want to know more about Brill and windmill technicalities, take a look at the our Shop.
