This windpump, located in the corner of a field south of The Street, is a Grade 2 Scheduled Ancient Monument and believed to be the only one of its type left. It was erected in 1832 and has been restored with help from English Heritage and Norfolk County Council.
It pumped water from the nearby beck to massive tanks at a nearby home and also a local farm.
