It is familiar to millions of travellers due to its location on the principal main
road into Blackpool, just by the end of the M55 motorway.
Relatively few however know the story of the mill, or its place in local history.
Recently, with co-operation between Blackpool Council and The Friends of Little Marton
Windmill, it has become possible to view the interior of the mill, and the remaining
original machinery, whilst enjoying a unique exhibition depicting the story of windmills
across the Fylde.
The story is told of how the mill was saved into preservation as a memorial to popular
local author Allen Clarke, was adopted by the town council, and eventually opened
to the public by the Friends group.
