River Ant


Recommended Posts

We seem to have threads for most of the Broadland rivers in the Historic Broads section, but I couldn't find one for the River Ant ... so here we go...




The mill seen in that last postcard was Ludham Bridge North Mill, still standing but in a more derelict state. I came across the photograph below amongst an album I purchased recently. I think the album spans the late 1940s to 1950s and this photo shows how the mill was converted for use as a pillbox and lookout post during WW2, with a gallery around the top and the old cap utilised to provide some protection from the elements.
