Horsey Mill, Horsey, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk NR29 4EF

Horsey drainage mill was built by millwrights England of Ludham as a 4 storey, red brick tower wind pump with a boat shaped cap, petticoat, gallery and 4 patent sails and stood near the road beside a dyke.

Horsey Windmill is a five storey windpump on the Norfolk Broads, built in 1912 to pump water out from the surrounding land so that it could be used for agriculture. It was operational until 1943, when it was hit by lightning. The National trust took ownership of Horsey Windpump in 1948 and restored it. It is now open to visitors on certain days in season. You can climb the floors of the pump and see the workings, with steep steps taking you up to the top for a great view back over Horsey!
