Thorpeness Windmill
Built in 1803, Thorpeness Windmill was originally a corn mill at the nearby village of Aldringham. It was purchased and moved to its present site in 1923, where it was converted to pump water by sail power. Thirty years ago it was restored and purchased by Suffolk County Council, and today it is still a fully functioning windmill, housing displays on Thorpeness village and areas of outstanding beauty in Suffolk. For the more adventurous visitors, it is worth climbing the steep wooden steps to view the inner workings of the mill.
