Welcome to Mostert's Mill

Mostert’s Mill is now fully restored on the third anniversary of the fire.

The mill is open on the third Saturday of every month – 10h00 to 15h00 – (weather permitting) to members of the Friends of Mosterts Mill. 

Come and watch the last remaining working windmill in Africa, more than 220 years old, milling wheat into whole meal using the power of the wind.
