Gt Yarmouth Cobholm later post windmill had unusually been built as a replacement for a towermill that had in turn been built to replace an even earlier postmill. The mill had 4 double shuttered sails, each with 7 bays of 3 shutters and a 6 bladed fan was set on a tailpole.


It was rebuilt as a post windmill, but had a very short lafe and was not on any local map after 1888.
... there is a distance photograph of this post windmill in one of P. H. Emmerson's Broads books about 1870.
