The windmills of Suffolk are among its most
iconic landscape features. At one time there
were hundred of such mills in the county
and those few that survive are important
reminders of the region’s heritage.
across the county they stand as sentinels to a
distant industrial past in which they provided
wind-driven power for milling and for draining
The best known of these survivors are the
windmills on the Broads but others can be
found elsewhere across the county, the most
important (and photogenic) of which are
included in this book:
BARDWELL • FRAMSDEN • FRISTON •
GREATTHURLOW • HERRINGFLEET • HOLTON •
KELSALE (SKOULDING’S MILL) • PAKENHAM •
REYDON (SOUTHWOLD) • SAXTEAD GREEN •
STANTON • SYLEHAM •THELNETHAM •
THORPENESS •WALBERSWICK •
This book showcases a selection of the
photographer’s personal favourite windmills
and drainage mills that can be found in
Suffolk today. Chris Herring’s photographs
are superb in bringing out the best of the
romance of these beautiful historic structures.
