Norfolk Mills

What a delight! I like the information detail. In particular I was happy to come across this because of the mention of sturgeon:

Another sturgeon, nearly as large as the first, killed in the river by the paper mill, April 15th.
The Mighty City in the East - A. Leigh Hunt 1870

The original sturgeon referred to above was killed in the Mill Pool of nearby Thetford Mill on 7th April 1715 and apparently was found to be measuring 7 ft. 8 in. in length, and 3 ft. 2 in. in circumference, and weighing 192 lbs.


Plus, I lived in Feltwell many years ago. Link…
