Wind Energy Museum

Large variety of full scale wind pumps, steam machinery and a unique waterwheel, along with working demonstrations and models. Part of the museum is Thurne Mill and its beautiful wind pump. The collection of the late Mr Ronald Morse who had a fascination with windmills and windpumps which dated back some 82 years. Originating from Sussex from an engineering background, at the age of seven he was given a writing pad picturing a windmill on the front cover. This was to lead to a lifetime of preservation and restoration. In 1947 he purchased the then derelict white tower mill at Thurne in Norfolk, at a time when most were being knocked down for rubble and scrap. He then began to collect derelict windpumps, which consisted of several exhibits from the UK, America and Australia dating from the late 19th century to the early 20th centuries.
