Burwell Museum & Windmill

Burwell Museum in Cambridgeshire is one of the smallest open-air museums, but also one of the best organised that we have visited. It is very sharply focussed on fen-edge life and Burwell village. It is staffed by volunteers, so unfortunately it is only open on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank-holiday Mondays, between Easter Monday and October.

The two most interesting buildings from my point of view are the eighteenth century barn and Stevens’ Mill. The former has been moved to the museum from its original location, but the latter stands on its original site on the footprint of an even earlier mill.
