Come and join us on our open evening tomorrow and take a glimpse of what it would have been like to use these amazing instruments. Viewing is subject to weather conditions. If you are specifically coming just to look through the telescopes then please check the local weather before embarking on a long journey. The Centre still opens for the evening and plan a cloudy night contingency talk which is usually a planetarium show in the large white geodesic tent, if there are enough people in the Centre.

REMEMBRANCE: On Remembrance Sunday, the Windmill was lit up with poppies. From dusk poppies lit up the windmill at Windmill Hill to commemorate one hundred years since the World War One armistice on 11 November 1918. The display was be visible to the east and south of Windmill Hill and was part of the programme of commemorative events arranged in Herstmonceux and Wartling. The trustees of the Windmill Hill Windmill Trust said, ‘lighting up the windmill with poppies is our way of marking the sacrifice made by local men and women during World War One’. The projection was sponsored by QED Productions Ltd of Hertfordshire. More information from: www.windmillhillwindmill.org or call 01323 833033.
