Majestic Windmills and Thurne Dyke

I never thought of England having windmills. Recently I adventured to the Norfolk Broads with some friends and decided to research the area to see what there was to do. Well, needless to say, there was next to nothing! However, to my surprise, the area did offer a few windmills. So I insisted on venturing down the windy narrow roads until we found them. I think if I counted correctly there are 24 windmills in the Norfolk Broads. From where we were standing, I could only see two windmills, but two were way better than none.

The area it’s self is beautiful, surrounded by the Broads, a series of rivers and inlets, mostly man-made. I wanted to share some photos of my adventure.

The Thurne Dyke Mill, is a drainage mill and was built-in 1820 on the banks of the River Thurne just at the mouth of Thurne Dyke. In 1949, Bob Morse saved the derelict mill from destruction.
