Finchingfield Post Windmill can be traced back to 1756. It has four spring sails, one pair of millstones and a tailpole. It is open to the public on some summer days.

It is not workable, because of its location among trees and cottages, but is opened once a month in the summer  by the Finchingfield Society, (owned by council).
