Gimingham Mill - Crossley Oil Engine
Gimingham Mill - Crossley Oil Engine
This former mill was once of the rare 'overshots' in Norfolk, fed by a large 20 acre broad fen. The wheel went early on and steam/diesel engines plus a water turbine (from 1912) was used to power the machinery. The mill worked until the mid 1970s using the diesel engine. Sadly the building burnt down but was rebuilt into a residential format. The diesel engine is preserved beside. LinkExternal link

This preserved Crossley (of Manchester) oil engine ran the machinery via belt drive for many years. An impressive engine, a Blackstone can be seen running at Pakenham mill in Suffolk and a Hornsby can be seen at nearby (ish) Letheringsett mill.
