Ashcombe Windmill in East Sussex

August 01, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

Ashcombe Windmill near the town of Lewes in East Sussex is a reconstruction of a windmill that was destroyed by a gale in the early 1900's. Granted planning permission in 2007 the final reconstruction of the windmill was finished in 2015.

While on a recent holiday in East Sussex I decided to re-visit this windmill and take some more photos as well as record a video for my photography You Tube channel.

Locating the windmill is very easy especially by foot. It can be accessed by car but there isn't dedicated parking along the private road, however there is a spot at the end of the road for two small cars to park on the grass verge. Please note that parking is at your own risk and you may be asked to move your vehicle.

From the A27 roundabout for Lewes turn into Ashcombe Hollow and continue on the road driving under a railway bridge where the road will become narrow. Just before you enter the village of Kingston turn left onto Juggs Road. Some parts of this road can be very uneven and suffer from pot holes. You will see the windmill on your left as you continue to drive up the road. Keep driving until you come to the end of the road where you will see a gate. This is where the rest of your journey will be on foot, as all you will need to do is walk through the gate onto a grass path where you will be able to see the windmill to your left. There is plenty of viewing locations for this windmill along the grass track, however this doesn't take  you right up to the windmill as the windmill is on private land.
