Friston Windmill in Suffolk is 50 feet (15.24 m) high, making it the tallest surviving post mill in the United Kingdom. It is also the third highest post mill ever built in Britain, behind the demolished mills at Thorndon and Honington. The mill has been preserved but the three pairs of millstones and most of the other equipment has been removed. It was moved from Woodbridge by Collins, the Melton millwright in 1812 and was erected on land purchased by William and Mary Scarlett. Its preservation is due mainly to Mr Chris Culhoop and the work of the Suffolk mills group.

These drawings could not have been prepared without the information and help from enthiasts, their surveys and photographs from the Mills Archive Trust.
