tower mill

The 9 floors of Sutton windmill make it one of the tallest in the country. The mill dates from 1789, and last worked in 1940 when a lightning strike put it out of action, though the milling machinery which was replaced in 1860 is still present. The sails were 73 feet across from tip to tip, though at present only the sail stocks are present, and the fantail has not yet been replaced.

In its working days, it was able to produce forty tons of flour a day, using 4 sets of French Burr stones, though like many mills it ended its working life milling animal feed.

The mill is open to the public as part of the Broads Museum complex, which include a large collection of bygones.
