Narborough Bone Mill

Belgrave House, Main Road, Narborough, King's Lynn, Norfolk, PE32 1TE

View a restored 16' waterwheel and original brick floors from the remains of Victorian mill buildings, see finds uncovered during excavations, have a guided tour of the site and see our visitor centre which is a mini replica of the original building.

The Narborough bone mill is situated on the banks of the River Nar about a mile from the village. Access to the site is via a beautiful 15 to 20 minute walk from the free car park, (dogs are welcome). There are the remaining floors of buildings, pieces of old machinery, tunnels, an underground chamber and many interesting finds such as bones, metalwork, coins, a human skull bone and clay pipe fragments, along with the waterwheel. Once on site enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit/cake (donations appreciated) and a chat with one of our knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteers, who can answer your questions about the bone mill which was operating in Victorian times grinding bones to make fertiliser. We usually have the water wheel turning on open days. There is a model of how the mill would have looked in our visitor centre.

This event took place in September 2023 and the entry is now archived.
