Mill Hill


Drainage Mills (Windpumps)
Steam Mills

Buxton MSS is a collection of Norfolk documents in the Cambridge University library. Two documents are: a Field Book of Hargham & Snettereton, dated 1681 and A Roll containing rental of one of the Manors of Snetterton Parishes (Pary's or Grimes) dated 1465.
Windmills for grinding corn exiszted at various times in both parishes. The 1681 map shows two in Snetterton, one of which was disused.
Map No. 3, Snetterton in 1681, shows the two mills.
TL997909 is 3-400 yards east of the church, is given as at MILL HILL in 1465 and in 1681 when it would probably be the one then disused. TL985902, between KNOLL MOAR and COMMON MOAR (1681) would be the site of the
(postmill and) later smock mill near MILL FARM.
