The riverside windmills were built to drain the marshes of excess water from C18 - C20 so that cattle could graze there. Most ceased working around World War 2, and fell derelict. The Norfolk Mills and Pumps Trust started to repair them in the 1960s, but their funding was cut off 4 years ago by the County Council. Many of the mills are now at risk, and need repair. Would any Forum members be interested in contributing a)Their time to form and run a Preservation Group (b Money or (c}Hands-on practical help to save the mills? The Broads mills are a unique survival, having both historical and mechanical importance.
