TM 47 NE REYDON 4/26 Blackshore Windpump - 29/7/76 - II Drainage windmill, now disused. Circa 1890 by Robert Martin of Beccles. Slender red brick tower just over 8m. high, with original curb and cap frame; the cap roof, sails and fantail are missing. The machinery is of cast iron and is complete except for the plunger pump which was driven by a 3-throw crankshaft, a similar arrangement to the East Bridge mill, now at the Museum of East Anglian Life, Stowmarket. An important landscape feature and one of only 2 remaining drainage mills on the Suffolk coastal marshes, the other being at Walberswick.
