Wicklewood Mill

Wicklewood windmill is a mid 19th C towermill that was used to grind animal feed. It was modernised early in the 20th C with a steam engine (1904) and new iron machinery inside (salvaged from other mills). The mill ceased production in 1942.

The mill was restored by the Norfolk Windmills Trust in 1980 and has been closed/open for several years since. In early 2013 the steel stocks were replaced with wooden ones. The mill is open throughout the year on special events.


Wicklewood is a village in the South Norfolk district of Norfolk. It is located 11 miles west of Norwich next to the Market town of Wymondham, neighbouring the villages of Deopham, Hackford and Kimberley.
The village has a small primary school, Wicklewood School, as well as a small church, St Andrews and All Saints.
The village also has one public house called the Cherry Tree.

Tower Mills

There are three main types of windmill in Great Britain. Post mills, smock mills and tower mills.

The tower mill is generally the largest of the three, built in brick with a pivoting wooden top and sails, turned by a tail fan.
