Drainage Mills (Windpumps)
Steam Mills

Lopham had two windmills in the 1200s that were still working in the early 1300s, being under the same ownership as East Harling watermill.

Roger (Bygod) ... being 25 years old, but he also having no issue, in 1301 settled all his estate except ... upon King Edward I, after his and his wife's death ...
This Roger, jointly with his wife, Alice, held this manor of the King's grant upon the settlement, at which time the manor house had a demean of 335 acres of land, 15 of meadow and 20 acres of pasture with a park, 2 windmills and a fourth part of Harling mill ... he died in 1305.
