Heage Windmill will be formally opened next Saturday at 12noon when BBC presenter Andy Potter will arrive on a vintage tractor.

Also present will be mayor of Amber Valley councillor Angela Ward and the patron of the the 200-year-old, Grade 2* listed windmill, John Kirkland, chairman of Bowman and Kirkland. Windmill trustee Alan Gifford said: “Andy’s path to the microphone has been a varied one involving printing, teaching, sales and being an extra on quite a few television programmes.

“He says that he’s really looking forward to officially opening one of Derbyshire’s most iconic buildings and joining the line of illustrious personalities that have preceded him.”
