Biking Group visit Wheatley Windmill, Open Day May 2013

A local motorbike group sent a message to Janet, the Society Secretary, requesting a group visit to the windmill. They made arrangements to visit on the first Open Day of 2013, 12th May. They came early so that their bikes were not a nuisance for other visitors in Windmill Lane. Here we have some photos taken of their visit and three short video clips. You will need to double-click on the links to the video clips, they are a little slow to get started.
