The River Burn at Burnham Overy Mill, Norfolk

Burnham Overy Mill is located between Burham Market and Burnham Overy Staithe in the county of Norfolk. Burnham Thorpe, the birthplace of Horatio Nelson is close by. Documents show that Nelson learned to row and sail a dinghy at Burnham Overy Staithe, at the age of 10, two years before joining the Navy. The Tower Windmill at Burnham Overy Mill was built in 1816. It is a six storey, Grade II listed building which has been converted to holiday accommodation for up to 19 people and is in the care of the National Trust.
