Drainage Mills (Windpumps)
Steam Mills

Scoulton post windmill was working in the late 1200s. A map has now come to light showing the mill position on Mill Hill Field in 1765. However, to identify the site on a more modern map is not overly easy, as the road and track layouts have altered dramatically and the surveyors in the 1700s did not have modern equipment to ensure accuracy.

This manor had free-warren, assize of bread and beer, a manor-house, windmill and fishery and was worth £11. 7s. per annum in 1282.
