Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (2)
- None recorded
"Pulhams Mill" is printed on the 1962 6 inch map.  Corn mill, now a barn. Leat, now overgrown, from Pulham River at SS 9547 3149 and marked "old mill leat" on Ordnance Survey map.  It is shown as a corn mill on the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map but as disused on the 2nd Edition. [3,4] It has subsequently been used as a barn. A number of leats, possibly relating to the mill are visible on aerial photographs.  A mill leat is shown on the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map from SS 95476 31387 to the west side of Pulhams Mill, suggesting that the wheel was on this side. The mill race from the mill to the river is not shown so it may have been in a culvert by this time . The mill leat and mill race are shown on the Tithe Map with the position of the wheel apparently on the rear (north side) of the mill, with the mill race then continuing into the river to the west of the mill  .
