The Friends of Little Marton Windmill is an independent voluntary group of local people. They promote knowledge of the mill, its place in local history, and awareness of the extensive windmill heritage of the Fylde Coast.
The Friends run open days and exhibitions at the mill. See inside this fascinating building and some of the original machinery. Heritage displays are normally in place from spring until late autumn.

Living Artwork at Little Marton Windmill
(Published Oct 2014)
LeftCoast in partnership with Avant Gardening and artist Rebecca Chesney created a giant living artwork in the green space around Little Marton Windmill.
Residents and businesses rolled up their sleeves to plant 100,000 crocuses to create the ambitious installation.
Not do they create a stunning living artwork that can be enjoyed by local residents, but it also brightens Preston New Road and the route into Blackpool for visitors.
The crocus field has flowered each year from Spring 2015. It’s the perfect habitat for wildlife and bees as well as a torrent of colour around the mill.
