Polkey's drainage mill

Polkey's Mill was built around 1880 to drain water from the neighbouring marshes into the River Yare.

It was also known as South Mill, and originally one of an open group of three mills along with the North Mill and Cadge's Mill. It stopped operating in 1941 when a diesel system was installed nearby.

The mill and its machinery were restored to working order in 2005.
