Blundeston Mill / Mill House
Blundeston Mill / Mill House
Blundeston Mill was built around 1820 by Robert Martin, a millwright from Beccles. The mill was worked until 1923 and has since been converted to a private dwelling house.

Blundeston is the birthplace of 'David Copperfield', in the novel of the same name by Charles Dickens. Despite local legend, it is difficult to tell whether Dickens actually visited here, or stayed at Somerleyton Hall > LinkExternal link in the neighbouring village. Blundeston no longer has a shop but there is a Primary School; St Mary's church, with a round tower dating from Saxon times, and two pubs. On the southern edge of the village is Blundeston Prison which used to house B Category prisoners but in recent years has changed to the lower security C Category status.
