Cromer is a hamlet in the civil parish of Ardeley, Hertfordshire, England.[1]

Cromer Windmil

It is a small hamlet; however, it is noteworthy for possessing Hertfordshire's sole surviving post mill.[2][3] The current mill dates from 1681[4] on a site where a windmill has stood for over 600 years. The mill has been damaged several times, but was brought back into full working order in 1998 after receiving grants of over £50,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund and English Heritage. The mill first opened to the public in 1991, and has continued to do so ever since.
