Full Description

Tutelina Mills. Small four-storey tower mill, built in 1865. The cap and sails were removed in the 1910s. The mill worked with an engine until the mid-1960s and is now disused. The cap frame remains in place. There were four patent sails, a domed cap with fantail and there are two pairs of stones (S1). The mill is also said to have been called Clarkes Mill, and the sails are said to have blown off in 1916 (S2).
Accurately plotted on (S3).

Grade II listed building: Tower mill, now disused. Dated 1865. Red brick tower with 3 floors above the ground floor. Cap frame intact; cap roof, winding gear and sails missing. Machinery below the curb largely intact including iron upright shaft, mortice (wood and iron) crownwheel, iron spurwheel and one pair of millstones; the second pair has been replaced by a crusher. Auxiliary power was provided by a Crossley oil engine which still survives. A good example of a small, late windmill and one of the very few tower mills in Suffolk which retains the potential for a full restoration (S4).
