The former Bacton Wood Watermill
The former Bacton Wood Watermill
The last working mill was rebuilt in 1747. Extensive modification was carried out around 1825 due to an expected increase in trade, following the opening of the North Walsham & Dilham Canal in 1826. The North Walsham & Dilham Canal basically is the canalised River Ant, which was widened to accommodate Norfolk wherries that transported offal to two bone mills and took corn to Bacton Wood mill, with return loads consisting of flour. The canal ran from Smallburgh to Antingham and contained 6 locks. Originally of white rendered brick with a slate roof, the mill house had a Norfolk pantile roof, which in later years was changed to slate. The brick bridge spans a dry mill race; this is how it looks on the other side of the road > TG2930 : The former mill race. See also TG2930 : Bacton Wood Mill LinkExternal link
