    Norfolk Tourist Information / Historical / Windmills & Water Mills

    Weybourne Windmill
    Weybourne towermill was built in 1850. The five storey red brick tower had a white boat shaped cap with a petticoat, an eight bladed fan, a gallery and a second floor stage.

    The south facing outside door had a porch and there was a further inside door leading to the granary that abutted the tower. On the second floor were three pairs of overdriven stones.

    The mill had four double shuttered sails, each with nine bays of three, although at one time the two outer bays of each sail had no shutters.

    During the restoration in the 1920s, the roof of the granary that butted up against the tower was raised. This meant that the new sails installed in 1969 were considerably lower than the roof line. The four new skeleton double sails each had eight bays and were fixed to a black boat shaped cap facing east with an eight bladed skeleton fan to the rear. The gallery and stage had been removed and the stage door glazed to match the windows.
