Perfectly preserved water pump windmill, great volunteers on hand to explain everything. Great car park with lots of local walks to the beach, Broads or countryside. Simple cafe and clean toilets.

Personally I think this is worth the ride out to see the Windpump which at present is having restoration work done which means you can’t go to the top part to see the view. The location is nice too - if you cross over the...More
