Summary

The remains of Skeppers Mill, Oulton Marsh, Oulton, were recorded through digital photography and the construction of a scale plan using data from a measured sketch.

Skeppers Mill was a simple trestle type wind pump of probable early 19th century origin. The actual mill structure was primarily of timber and had been removed sometime in antiquity although the extant remains of some of the supporting brickwork survived. This consisted of three brick columns, which presumably supported the main structure of the mill, and two further blocks of brickwork probably related to a scoop wheel for raising the water but which may also have supported the mill.
