Small open-trestle hollow-post windpump

Small open-trestle hollow-post windpump with fantail in w/o. As yet unidentified. Vincent Pargeter comments: "The countryside looks like the upper Bure or River Ant. The puzzle is that the mill doesn't seem to be built on brick piers. It certainly isn't Clayrack Mill, which was on piers, and wasn't anywhere near a river (In a marsh near Malthouse Broad, but not near open water). The mill in the photo almost certainly had a piston pump, as no scoop wheel is visible, and no gear drive to a turbine pump. It's easier to say which mills it isn't: Wroxham Bidge, Irstead Street, Acle (Palmer's), Breydon, Wayford Bridge. Rex Wailes mentions a hollow post at Irstead with a piston pump, so it may be that one, but I haven't seen a picture of it. There were very many of these hollow post mills in the Broads, and Wailes only mentions a fraction of them."
