A 6-storey tower mill, probably built in 1836 by the Wickham Market millwright, John Whitmore, and one of
the finest examples of his work. Last worked in 1928, and restored in the 1980s. The sails and cap now turn
again, and there is some fine internal machinery, including four pairs of millstones. Ground floor display
of history and workings.
