windpumps Bob Morse has passed away.

Bob Morse, July 2006 It's with great sadness that I note that Bob Morse died on 2nd Jan 2007.

Bob had a long fascination with windmills (and especially windpumps), and had dedicated much of his life to their preservation. 60 years ago he purchased the derelict Thurne Dyke mill, and began work on restoring it. Now leased to the Norfolk Windmills Trust, the mill is restored to working order. Bob also assembled a terrific collection of windpumps, now known as Morse's Wind Engine Park, and along the way was responsible for saving many other items of fenland drainage equipment, including a number of steam engines.
