Green\'s Windmill in Sneinton was built by the father of notable scientist and mathematician George Green in 1807. Today the working Mill is a popular museum and science centre, where both adults and children can learn about George Green’s work.
Green was a mathematical genius and the science centre has hands-on activities and experiments which explore light, magnetism and electricity.
The windmill itself was badly damaged by a fire in 1947 but was restored by Nottingham City Council in the 1980\'s. The windmill began milling again in December 1986 and the giant sails can still be seen working to this day.
