Wiseman's Oby Mill
Wiseman's Oby Mill
Viewed from the public footpath which runs along the elevated bank of the River Bure on the other side. Wiseman's Oby mill, now derelict, once used to be 4 storeys tall. The brick mill was located on the Oby Manor House estate which was tenanted by the Wiseman family, hence it is known as Wiseman's Mill. It is believed to have been built in 1753. Its sails powered both a drainage wheel as well as a saw bench, presumably used for estate work. An engine-driven turbine was used in addition, when required. The building was Grade II listed in 2008.
