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

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.
