windmills Unidentified mill from the Harris Museum and Art Gallery collection

I've been sent a photo by the Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Preston, which they would like to identify. Its from a glass negative taken by the Berkeley-Weld family of Chipping in the early 20th century. It shows a small smock mill on a river bank - by the fantail and cap layout I'd say its a drainage mill on the Norfolk Broads, but I can't identify it more accurately than than. Please take a look, and see if you can identify it.

Update: Now identified as Horning Ferry windpump - much altered, but surviving as a holiday home.
Mills: [Horning Ferry]
