Drainage windmill, now disused. Circa 1890 by Robert Martin of Beccles.
Slender red brick tower just over 8m. high, with original curb and cap frame;
the cap roof, sails and fantail are missing. The machinery is of cast iron
and is complete except for the plunger pump which was driven by a 3-throw
crankshaft, a similar arrangement to the East Bridge mill, now at the Museum
of East Anglian Life, Stowmarket. An important landscape feature and one of
only 2 remaining drainage mills on the Suffolk coastal marshes, the other
being at Walberswick.
