Mill Hill


Drainage Mills (Windpumps)
Steam Mills

Ebridge postmill stood on Mill Hill just to the south and on the opposite side of the road to Ebridge Farm, which was technically in Witton.

To Millers
A MARRIED MAN, small family will not be objectionable, who will have the whole trust and superintendance of a Tower Mill; he must be perfect master of the trade in all its various branches. None need apply but those who can bring an unquestionable character; a comfortable Dwelling house contiguous to the Mill and liberal wages if approved.
Also a Single Man who can come well recommended as a good Stone Dresser.
Apply personally to Mr. William Partridge, North Walsham Mills.
