The Windmill Pub in Charlton was a vibrant village pub. It was forced to close in 2015 and was sold, with the car park, to a private owner. The pub and car park are now neglected and at risk of redevelopment.
The Save the Windmill campaign group has formed a community benefit society and aims to raise funds with a share offer to buy the pub and car park for the community.
We need residents of Hitchin and beyond to work together to save the pub and car park.
As a community hub, The Windmill would be more than a pub – offering free wifi, good coffee, local beer and food, and a community space to gather. Under the canopy of the willows, the river would sparkle once again, a relaxing place for people, a favourite for dogs and ducks, and a haven for wildlife.
