Frimley Green Windmill is a Grade II listed tower mill at Frimley Green, Surrey, England, which has been converted to residential use.

History

Frimley Green Windmill was first mentioned in 1784 in the ownership of a Mr Terry. It passed to Thomas Lilley in 1792 and then William Collins in 1801. In 1803, the mill passed into the ownership of the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, remaining in the hands of the military until at least 1832 and probably much later than that. The mill was disused by 1870, and the derelict shell was converted to residential use in 1914.
