Gresham

Gur Beck is a minor watercourse which rises in the north of the English county of Norfolk [Ordnance Survey, Explorer Map, Norfolk Cost East, ISBN 0 319 23815 8] . It is a tributary of the Scarrow Beck. It's spring is a little east of the North Norfolk village of West Beckham. It eventually merges after 4.2 miles with the Scarrow Beck at Sustead. There is one watermills on the beck. This can be found in the village of Gresham, But is no longer in working order.

Gresham Watermill

Gresham Watermill was only a small mill and today all that remains is the mill house with the watercourse channel and a small part of the foundations lying to the west side of the mill house [ [http://www.norfolkmills.co.uk/Watermills/gresham.html] Gresham Watermill] . The site later became known as Old Watermill Farm and is in Lower Gresham. In 1819 the mill was powering 2 pairs of French burr stones, which were used to ground local wheat to produce flour.
