This iconic structure can be seen if you are travelling along the river Bure by boat, plenty of free moorings and just a short walk to the Abbey ruins. Very atmospheric, this place has an amazing history. Very photogenic too.

Moored at the jetty alongside this wonderful ruin and joined the free tour that starts at the windmill at 3.00pm, we went on Wednesday, check the website for other days. Absolutely fascinating to see the preserved arch actually inside the windmill, one wonders 'why' ?
