Gt. Yarmouth
South Myddlemylle Denes postmill
No. 6A


Drainage Windpumps
Steam Mills

This should be the new mill referred to in a copy of a lease of 1542 to Wm. Steelyarde, carpenter, stating that . . . he lately had the lease of a windmill belonging to the Church of St. Nicholas, called the South Myddlemylle, but that he had taken down and carried away the mill from the place where it stood. He now covenents within one year, to re-edifie, make and build upon or near the site where the said mill lately stood, as good a mille as either of the South mylle or north myddlemylle standing upon the Denes of Yarmouth aforesaid.
