Sibsey Trader Windmill was built in 1877 by Saundersons of Louth and stands 74' 3" from base to the top of the cap. It is one of the few 6 sail mills left in England.

It was earmarked by the Ministry of Works in the 1960s as one of 12 windmills of national importance and was renovated in the 1970s.

It is open to visitors at weekends throughout the year and on Tuesdays from May to September.
