Chillenden Windmill in Goodnestone in Dover is a white painted post mill, dating back to 1868. Based on a Dutch design the windmill is a well-known local landmark with an interesting history. One of only three similar types in the country replaced an earlier post mill on the same site. The mill ceased regular work in 1949 and was preserved in the 1950s, although restored many times since, it collapsed in a gale in November 2003, though it is now fully restored to its former glory. Chillenden Mill is owned by Kent County Council but tours are operated by volunteers and it is managed by the Friends of Chillenden Windmill.
