Streatham Wells welcomes in the Spring equinox

The Spring equinox brought our first group of school children inside the windmill today. Thirty year one children from Streatham Wells visited the Meal floor of the windmill. They were intrigued by the cracks in the floorboards and enchanted by the electric-powered millstone. Some children expected to find lots of spiders webs whilst others were keen to try out the hand millstones. All the children had a go at making flour and designing the packaging for it. The group also learnt lots of new words including governor, quern and sack hoist.
