Hindolveston tower mill
Hindolveston tower mill
The towermill stands in a property just east of Foulsham Road, near the centre of the village. It was built in 1844 by John Pegg and the 5 storeys high tower consisted of flint and rubble encased in Norfolk red brick. The boat shaped cap had a petticoat, a gallery and an 8-bladed fan and 4 double-shuttered sails, each with 7 bays of 3 shutters. During the second world war the top story of the mill was removed as it was believed to be a hazard to low flying aircraft from nearby Foulsham airfield. After the war the mill ceased working and in 1948 was converted into a private dwelling house with the tower becoming the entrance hall. A new boat-shaped cap was fitted in 1979.
