Cadge's Drainage Mill

Cadge's Drainage Mill

Description
Cadge's drainage mill is approximately 2 miles downstream of Reedham on the river Yare in Norfolk, and once drained the surrounding marshes into the higher level river. Built between 1870 and the early 1880's, it was decomissioned in 1941. It has since been made weather tight and has been fitted with a new cap, using some of the original timbers, and it now also houses the switchgear for the nearby modern drainage pump. #Drainage_Mill #England #Norfolk #UK #windmill
