What was I photographing on this day in previous years?
Ten years ago it was this Grade II* listed tower mill at Burnham Overy Staithe on the North Norfolk coast.
Returning home (the pretty way, around the coast on the A149) from my first trip to Norfolk and just had to stop and photograph this most East Anglian of buildings!
Built in 1816 for miller Edmund Savory, the mill last worked in 1919 and was turned into holiday accommodation by Cambridgeshire architect Hugh Hughes in the late 1920s. Following restoration in 1957 the mill was given to the National Trust and today is available to rent by holidaymakers.
