About Horsey Windpump

The striking windpump provides stunning views over the coast and broadland landscape.

Set within the Broads National Park, the Horsey estate is an internationally important site for wildlife and offers a great spot for birdwatching and wintering wildfowl.

Horsey Estate is managed by the Buxton family, from whom it was acquired.

During the great gales of 1987 Horsey Windpump succumbed to the extreme weather conditions and the cap was severely damaged.

Experience the Broadland landscape and wealth of wildlife of the Horsey Estate, with its Mere, reedbeds, marshes and drainage mills. We acquired The Horsey Estate in 1948 from the Buxton family, who continue to manage it.

'The Bitterns boomed and Marsh Harriers hawked over Horsey, the caterpillars of the Swallowtail were still to be found on clumps of Milk Parsley' - Sir Peter Scott.

This walk is provided with support from our lessee, the Horsey Estate Trust who manage much of the Horsey Estate, and also with thanks to the Broads Authority and the Broadland Flood Alleviation Project.

Repair work was carried out and the windpump was reopened to the public in 1990.
