Drainage Mills (Windpumps)
Steam Mills

Martham Market Road early post windmill was the first mill on site later occupied by a towermill that was built a short distance to the southeast after a fire seriously damaged the postmill in 1786. A later postmill was built as a replacement nearby on the same site. It's probable that the roundhouse of this earlier postmill was used a storehouse by the owners of the towermill.

... was a post mill with an ancient background but suffered a "burning" in 1786-9.
