Norton Marsh Drainage Mill
Norton Marsh Drainage Mill
Norton Marsh drainage mill, built in 1863 on the south bank of the River Yare just to the east of the mouth of the River Chet and to the south of Reedham Ferry stands beside a modern red brick pumphouse. The 4 storey tarred red brick tower stands 10 metres tall and has an overall base diameter of about 7 metres. When the mill ceased working the cap, sails and machinery were removed and replaced by a conical iron roof that remained in place until 1988 when it was replaced by a new Norfolk boat shaped cap with a modern safety barrier. The scoop wheel was also reconstructed. The mill has since been converted into a holiday let accommodation.
