History

South Marsh Mill was built in 1830. It was working by wind until 1915, when the windshaft snapped, but was worked by engine until 1922. The machinery was removed c.1941.[2]

Description

South Marsh Mill is a five storey tower mill. She had four Patent sails carried on a cast iron windshaft. The cap was a beehive shape, winded by a fantail. The mill drove three pairs of millstones. The cap now carried is an octagonal shape, housing the broken windshaft. The fantail is missing.[2] Various extensions have been made to the tower.[1]
