Drainage Mills (Windpumps)
Steam Mills

Witton had postmill that stood to the northwest of the village at Mill Farm on Witton Common, near North Walsham, later known as Mill Common, that could have been working for some time before it was replaced by a newer postmill c.1809, probably as a result of damage received in 1804.
