Union Mill is a Grade I listed smock mill in Cranbrook, Kent, England which has been restored to working order. It is the tallest smock mill in the UK.
Standing at the highest point overlooking the historic Wealden town of Cranbrook and maintained in working order, this Grade 1 Listed Building is the tallest surviving "smock mill" in the British Isles. Managed by Volunteers of the Cranbrook Windmill Association, the windmill is open at regular times from the end of March to the end of September each year. Educational and other Group Visits are welcome throughout the year.
Whenever there is sufficient wind, wheat is ground and, subject to availability, the Stoneground Wholemeal Flour can be purchased from the mill shop on open days.
