Thorpe Mousehold


Drainage Mills (Windpumps)
Steam Mills

Virtually no information is available for this postmill except that it stood on the edge of Mousehold Heath.

John Sell Cotman of the Norwich School painted a watercolour in 1809-1810 the showed the ruins of St. Michael's Chapel, later known as Kett's Castle and two postmills on the extreme left of Mousehold Heath.
The other postmill would have been the Black Mill.
