Visited here on my own, plan was to re shoot another site along the coast but fencing had gone up saying keep out, and as I left a van with chipboard on the back rolled up. This place is yet another pigeon haven and hence a national reserve for the pigeon crap. The floors and ladders for getting about are looking rather ropey since I last visited over 3 years ago, but still had a good snoop about. A chat with a old chap outside and I learnt that there are pople in talks with buying the site to turn it into either flats or holiday chalets. It is still up for sale for Ã‚Â£240,000 though. History Ebridge Mill was also sometimes known as North Walsham Mill. The old mill was 5 storeys high and built of red brick with a slate roof. The mill was built over the River Ant, which later became the North Walsham & Dilham Canal. The mill remained in the ownership of the family within Cubbitt & Walker Ltd from 1869 - 1998 when it was sold to Duffields and subsequently closed. When the goodwill of the flour milling business was sold to the Millers' Mutual Association in 1966, the milling machinery was broken up leaving the old mill as an ancillary to the new provender mill built alongside.On 15th March 1969 a fire in a silo intake was put out by a fire appliance from North Walsham. 27th February 2003: A planning application to convert the mill to 10 flats was rejected by North Norfolk DC 28th August 2003: Amazingly, NNDC gave consent to convert the mill to 12 holiday units November 2005: Planning application for 12 holiday homes by Tritec Synergy. NNDC does not allow residential February 2006: NNDC still unable agree to Tritec Synergy's scheme for conversion to holiday homes March 2006: Tritec Synergy's scheme for conversion to holiday homes passed by NNDC after much debate
