Friston Post Mill, Mill Road, Friston - East Suffolk

One of the tallest post mills in the country. Built 1812 and operational until 1956. Restored in 1976; temporary supports added 2004; post out of alignment, trestle fractured and now in need of comprehensive and permanent repair. Historic England awaiting condition survey and reports believed to have been commissioned by the owner in order to progress a discussion on repairs. The associated Mill House is also in a very poor condition; the roof is only partially intact and has been temporarily repaired, but still allows water penetration. Discussions to be re-started with the Local Authority.
