DESCRIPTION The Full Mill name derives from this unique property's history as the site of a medieval fulling mill. Newly woven cloth was treated using the power of the River Bure where there is now a ford, although nothing remains of it today. A pair of traditional flint cottages has been amalgamated and extended to form a family home that overlooks this site. To the rear are a double garage and other outbuildings including a cabin for an outdoor pool. Beyond are paddocks that have been used as a smallholding while downstream to the south-east the land is low lying and partly wooded to form a natural haven with a long river frontage.

DIRECTIONS The Full Mill lies a mile west of Saxthorpe and a quarter of a mile south of the B1354 road from Aylsham to Briston. Turn off the B1149 Holt to Norwich road in Saxthorpe opposite the garage and take the second left turn into Locks Farm Road down which The Full Mill is on the left before the ford. If coming from Fakenham via Thursford and Melton Constable along the B1354 turn right 2 miles beyond Briston just past the chicane and tin house.

LOCATION The Full Mill occupies a charming backwater in the Upper Bure Valley close to where the dismantled MGNRailway used to run through meadows and woodland into Corpusty and Saxthorpe Station. After being designated an Environmentally Sensitive Area there are County Wildlife Sites nearby and public footpaths afford access into the undulating countryside. Corpusty is a mile from here with a store cum post office, primary school and pub while Holt (5), Aylsham (6) and Fakenham (11) are only a few miles away with Norwich (16) and the north Norfolk coast (10) also within easy reach.
