Thurne Mill was built by local millwrights England & Co. of Ludham in 1820. Its job in life was to drain the marshes for the farmers to make good use of this valuable land. The mill would originally have been as tall as the black band shown in this photograph and would have driven a scoop wheel with cloth covered sails known as common sails.
