Pakenham Water Mill 2024

The last working watermill in Suffolk, this 18th century watermill is now owned by the Suffolk Building Preservation Trust. Water from Pakenham Fen collects in the mill pond to turn the 16ft iron waterwheel. In the former miller’s house next door you can see the old kitchen with its brewing vat and bread oven.
