Green's Mill is situated on a hilltop 30 metres from the main car park off Windmill Lane. There are several flights of steps between the car park and windmill.

However, car and minibus parking is available for wheelchair users and visitors with mobility.

With the exception of the upper floors of the windmill, everything is at ground level. This role requires that you are able to access the upper floors, require access to the upper floors of the mill, so accessibility will be person-specific based on how they manage with steep steps.
