Old Feltwell Road


Drainage Mills (Windpumps)
Steam Mills

Methwold Old Feltwell Road postmill was almost certainly working in the 1500s and was doubtless renovated several times over the years. It was almost certainly replaced by the towermill in 1875. The postmill was also shown on a 1500s map held in the Public Record Office and a photocopy was reproduced in
