Visitors enjoyed a taste of life from yesteryear as Heage Windmill held its first open event of the season.

More than a hundred folk turned out to see displays of sheep shearing and traditional wool spinning at the Chesterfield Road tourist spot. \

The event coincided with National Mills Weekend.

The windmill is now open to visitors throughout summer.
