Sutton windmill has been causing concern in the milling and heritage worlds for a while due to lack of maintenance. North Norfolk District Council have been involved to try and force the owners to commit to their responsibilities to maintain the structure safely.
Some sort of a plan was arrived at, and a temporary cap has been on site since late May, awaiting the opportunity for a crane to remove the old cap to allow repairs to be made. Unfortunately something seems to have gone wrong with the plans, and instead of removing the old cap for repairs it has been simply torn to pieces - not the approach a reputable millwright would have taken.
