Morley St Botolph post mill stood at Mill Farm to the north west of the village and was an open trestle postmill that had previously been dismantled and moved from its position near the gas works in Queen's_Road_Attleborough. The mill was powered by 2 double shuttered patent sails and 2 common sails. A 6 bladed fan on a tailpole turned the mill to wind.
