Stracey Arms drainage mill
Stracey Arms drainage mill
Stracey Arms Mill (Arnup's mill) is a four storey drainage mill on the River Bure. It was built of red brick in 1883 by Robert Barnes of Great Yarmouth. It was extensively modified in 1912. During WWII the mill was converted into a fortified pill box with gun ports in the sides. The mill ceased work in 1946 and restoration began in 1961. It has since been restored to full working order by the Norfolk Windmills Trust and it houses a photographic display of the history of the drainage mills in the Norfolk Broads. The mill is open to the public daily between Easter and September. The mill shop serves as a tearoom and ponies and donkeys can be seen in the adjoining paddock.

The moorings by Stracey Arms mill are the last on the River Bure before reaching Great Yarmouth.
