Berney Arms Windmill is a classified Ancient Monument. 70ft tall, it stands isolated in the marshlands west of Great Yarmouth on the north bank of the River Yare.
The mill was built to grind cement clinker and converted to drive a drainage waterwheel in the 1880s, following the closure of the cement works. Its 70ft tapered brick tower makes it the highest drainage mill in the Broadlands.
Motor pumps replaced it in 1948, but the mill has been restored and its four sails are still functional. It is inaccessible by road, but attracts visitors by boat and is also served by its own railway station, a request stop on the single line railway between Reedham and Yarmouth.
