This tide mill is a rare example. Built in 1793 on an earlier site, it ceased to work commercially in 1957.  Has a new wooden undershot waterwheel and four pairs of millstones. Reopened April 2012 after complete restoration with display panels, videos, models, games for children and audio stories.  Machinery turns whenever tides permit. (Milling demonstrations - see website).

National Mills Weekend opening times 2017
Saturday and Sunday, 11.00-17.00.  We intend to mount an exhibition at the mill related to the Real Bread Campaign detailing the Craft of Artisan Bakers in East Suffolk.
