Buttrum's Mill is one of England's finest tower windmills. Built in 1836, it was probably a wedding present to its first owner, Pierce Trott, who married in the same year. The mill is a product of the famous Suffolk millwright John Whitmore. Visitors can climb the tall tower to see his elegant machinery, including no less than four pairs of millstones.
There are no fixed pening times.
