Wicken Corn Windmill is a large Cambridgeshire smock mill built in 1813. It is currently the only smock, or wooden tower, windmill represented in the Traditional Corn Millers Guild. The mill drives two pairs of French burr stones, and various types of flour dresser.
The windmill business closed in 1933, although it was still worked occasionally by engine until 1942. It was restored from 1987 by the millwrights of the Wicken Windmill Partnership, and now works to satisfy demand for flour.
