Tourist Attractions:
  • Thelnetham Windmill: A small tower mill with patent sails, built in 1819. It worked until 1924. Restored to working order 1980-87 by members and friends of the Suffolk Mills Group. Visit website
  • Grime’s Graves: Is the only Neolithic flint mine open to visitors in Britain and well worth a visit. This grassy lunar landscape of 400 pits was first named Grim’s Graves by the Anglo-Saxons. It was not until one of them was excavated in 1870 that they were identified as flint mines dug over 5,000 years ago. Visit website
  • Stanton Windmill: A post mill, one in which the whole of the superstructure, complete with sails and all machinery, turns on top of a single post. It has been restored back to its former glory over the last twenty years and is the only windmill in Suffolk regularly producing flour, and one of only a handful of post mills still in working order in the UK.
