Tourists will enjoy visiting one of England's tallest working windmills at the Sibsey Trader Windmill. Built in 1877, it is one of six sail windmills remaining in England. It operates on occasional "milling Sundays".
The name Sibsey is from the Old English Sigebald, a personal name. In the 1086 Domesday book, the village is given as Sibolci. [A. D. Mills, "A Dictionary of English Place-Names," Oxford University Press, 1991]
