This mill, built in 1835 (replacing an earlier postmill), had a working life for just over a century, only stopping when the sails were struck by lightening. It has been restored to full working order and once again flour is milled.
In 1973 Norfolk County Council's Norfolk Windmills Trust took over the mill with a view to full restoration.
Denver windmill is open to the public and has its own website here.
The Norfolk Mills site has more about this mill which is the source for the information on this page.
I have been provided with information about various Sussex windmills from Simon Potter who runs a brilliant site about Sussex Mills.
More information on other wind and water mills may be found on the excellent Windmill World site.
