Located on Windmill Hill, just off the A267 at Argos Hill. Parking available in a nearby field on open days (follow signs).

Grade II* listed post mill, dating from c1835. The mill ceased working commercially in 1923 and in recent years had been left to deteriorate. Argos Hill Windmill Trust Ltd was formed in 2010 and took responsibility for the mill by leasing it from Wealden District Council.
A high-profile fundraising campaign was launched in 2011 to raise funds for the mill's restoration. The first two phases of the restoration project were successfully completed in 2016 when the mill's sweeps turned in the wind for the first time in over 80 years. Phase 3 of the restoration project is now underway.
