Ashton Windmill is a unique 18th century flour mill which stands on the ridge called ‘Isle of Wedmore’, from which you can see Cheddar Gorge, the Somerset Levels and Brent Knoll. The mention of a windmill on this site has been dated as far back as 1317. Although the mill last worked in 1927, it has been carefully restored.
