    East of England - Norfolk, Great Bircham, nr King's Lynn

    The earliest record of a windmill in Great Bircham is in 1761, when miller Richard Miller made his will. The mill, which was probably a post mill, was offered for sale in 1769. In 1800, the miller, Robert Sparham, was in financial difficulties and made a Deed of Assignment. In 1804, the mill was offered for sale or to let by George Humphrey. The next miller was Bloom Humphrey, who was followed by his widow Martha and then their son George. The mill remained in the Humphrey family until it was demolished around 1846 to enable a new tower mill to be built on its site.

    East of England - Norfolk, near Ludham

    Boardman’s Drainage Windmill is located at How Hill in the English county of Norfolk. It is on the east bank of the River Ant close to the large Edwardian building houses, the Norfolk Broads Study Centre.

    The Drainage mill is 1½ miles (2.5 km) west of the village of Ludham. The structure is a Grade-II-listed building.

    Boardman’s Drainage Windmill is of an interesting design, using an open-framed timber-trestle method in its construction. The mill has a miniature cap, sails and a fantail similar to the traditional tower drainage mills which can be seen on other parts of the Norfolk Broads. The windmill was restored by the Norfolk Windmills Trust in partnership with the Broads Authority. Just to the North of this windmill on the same side of the river Ant is another small interesting drainage windmill called Clayrack Drainage Mill. .. more
