Horsey Windpump is set within the Broads National Park, and provides stunning views over the coast and Broadland landscape. Operated by the National Trust, the windpump is currently open to the public.
The sails and fan tail are currently removed, as work begins to secure loose timber surrounding the building.
At a later date the cap will be removed and lowered to ground level in order for essential work to be carried out. These repairs will allow the cap to be restored to the original boat shape.
Approximately 300m from Horsey Windpump is the viewing point looking over Horsey Mere, which is a site of special scientific interest. Simply walk around the staithe and follow the footpath to get to the viewing point. In the far distance to the left of the mere, you can see Stubb Mill near to Hickling.
I visited Horsey Mere in March where I witnessed one of the most colourful sunsets that I have ever seen. A few months on, I decided to revisit the same spot to see what beautiful array of colours I could witness again.
I sat down on a bench at the viewing point and watched the sun creep more and more towards the horizon. The clouds started to get a yellow and orange glow and as the sun started to set, the vibrant pinks started to appear. Again another fantastic sunset and well worth the trip to Horsey.
