Old Buckenham Mill – Measured Survey

Published on 15th March 2019

The Norfolk Windmills Trust have appointed us to carryout work at Old Buckenham Mill, Norfolk.

Domenico D’Alessandro and Sam Roe visited in March 2019 to undertake a measured survey.

Old Buckenham Mill is the largest diameter mill in the country. The mill was build of red brick in 1818, and was built for John Burlingham who was the miller at the nearby Mill Farm postmill that became the site of the Methodist Chapel in 1871. It was believed that the mill was originally built with 8 common sails, these were replaced by 4 sails after serious storm damage in 1879. – Information from Norfolk Mills website.
