Boyce's Dyke
drainage pump
River Yare

May 1989
19th May 1989

Norton Boyce's wind pump was built just to the south of the road and to the northeast of nearby Nogdam End. The mill had a tarred red brick tower and the sails drove a scoop wheel.


By 1989 the tower had been reduced to two storeys and had become derelict. Some years earlier a segmented conical roof had been installed but several sections susequently fell in. Internally a ladder to the first floor remained. A derelict corrugated iron shed remained adjoining the mill.
