Buckenham Ferry drainage mill standing next to the River Yare, was built as a 4 storey red brick tower and had windows on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors. By 1989 the mill was roofless and had a definite lean. A brick shed had been built against the mill and a modern pump stood alongside it.

The Army Air Corps lifted a temporary roof onto Buckenham Ferry mill 27.10.1993 for the RSPB to keep pigeons out as mill tower was full of droppings. This was done free as a lifting project for the AAC. 
This temporary cap/cover of corrugated iron sheet was destroyed by gales in early 2007 and the RSPB hide on the right of the photo has now been dismantled.
