High Salvington Windmill is an excellent example of a working post mill dating from approximately 1750.

The mill has been extensively restored and was able to restart grinding in 1991
High Salvington Windmill had worked for nearly 150 years when it closed in 1897. In 1907/8 the old timber roundhouse was replaced with a concrete construction – used as a tea room well into the 1950’s.

Worthing Borough Council purchased the mill in 1959 and Edwin Hole, Millwrights, undertook restoration works in the early 1960’s

During a gale in 1976, one of the giant stocks carrying the sails broke and subsequent inspection revealed that all was far from well. The ravages of nature and the death watch beetle had seriously weakened timbers in the trestle supporting the 40 tons or so of the buck (the body of the mill).
