CLEY MILL

DESCRIPTION + /

Windmill, now holiday accommodation, which dates from the 1700s, although the tower was not completed until some time later in the 18th century. The Mill was first offered for sale in the Norfolk Chronicle on June 26th 1819 and passed through several hands during the next hundred years. The best known of the millers was Steven Barnabas Burroughs who worked and owned the Mill from 1840 to 1919, after which it fell into disrepair. In 1921 it was bought by Sarah Maria Wilson and converted into a holiday home. The conversion involved removing most of the working parts and fixing the cap and sails. The old stones, used for grinding the flour, were set into the ground nearby and the outbuildings were converted into stables and boat sheds. The mill consists of a five storey brick tower, white painted wooden cap, sails and fantail. It was further renovated and converted into a guesthouse in 1983.
