Ollands Road


Drainage Mills (Windpumps)
Steam Mills

Reepham Mill Hill post windmill stood on Mill Hill on the east side of Ollands Road and to the west of Reepham Moor. The mill was one of two mills on Ollands Road. One was surrounded by trees that the Bircham family refused to cut down, so the mill was moved and rebuilt at Booton.
