Sculthorpe Mill :-
The Sculthorpe Mill is a charming 18th century mill surrounded by Norfolk countryside set in beautiful gardens with the cascading River Wensum viewed from every window. Six newly refurbished en-suite guestrooms all with river views, a non smoking restaurant and cosy bar areas complete the picture.
After "kidnapping" his bride, the groom would take her and go into hiding. By the time the bride's family tracked them down them, the bride would probably already be pregnant! A "bride price" would then be negotiated. An earlier source is the early Jewish custom of the bride and groom spending a week together alone immediately after the marriage feast. The earliest reference to this practice is Jacob's marriages to Leah and Rachel.
