A Brief History of Yaxham Mill
The present Mill Tower was built in 1860 for the owner William Critoph. At a height of 48 feet with 6 stories and four double shuttered sails, the Mill Tower was a spectacular sight when tarred and freshly painted. Originally it is thought that there were 3 Mills on the present site. In 1810 a post Mill was built and out houses were also extended as the Mill grew with prosperity.
In 1922 the Yaxham Mill stopped using wind power and converted to steam and later diesel. However due to flagging fortunes the mill machinery was removed in 1940 and the tower became a storehouse. As the years went by, the site was left to the elements and was a far cry from the Mill you see today.
