HOW HILL WINDMILL

This windmill is on the River Ant at How Hill in the Norfolk Broads.
I’m not sure if it is a windmill or a windpump.
The local tourist information describes it as both – but I’m not sure that can be the case.

Wicken Fen Wind Pump

I’ve been here before, but this is one of those structures that seems to undergo changes in different lighting conditions.

This a wind pump used to pump water into the fens in an attempt to stop them drying out – or so I have been told.
