Cley postmill


Drainage Mills (Windpumps)
Steam Mills

Cley postmill was an open trestle mill that stood on Mill Hill.

The mill was depicted in an Eastern Daily Press advert for Mandell's Gallery, Norwich on 27th October 1978. The advert contained a print of Coastal Scene by the Norwich School artist Henry Bright (1810-1873)

The Hill is now known as Well Hill because of a well at its foot. This is no doubt, the well for Mill Cottage long since demolished.
