Explore #2: Ebridge Mill, North Walsham, Norfolk – August 2013

This was my second explore, and again a pretty successful one. The place was absolutely full of pigeons, remains of pigeon, and pigeon crap – you get the idea. Explored with Dora P, and we were both very grateful to have our P3 rated masks with us!

Here is a brief background to the mill, taken from The Norfolk Mills Site:

“Ebridge Mill was also sometimes known as North Walsham Mill. The old mill was 5 storeys high and built of red brick with a slate roof. The mill was built over the River Ant, which later became the North Walsham & Dilham Canal.

The mill remained in the ownership of the family within Cubbitt & Walker Ltd from 1869 – 1998 when it was sold to Duffields and subsequently closed.

When the goodwill of the flour milling business was sold to the Millers’ Mutual Association in 1966, the milling machinery was broken up leaving the old mill as an ancillary to the new provender mill built alongside.”

Thanks for looking.
