Woodbridge Tide Mill

The last working tide mill in the UK, operating for well over 800 years in Woodbridge, Suffolk.
The earliest record of a tide mill on this site by the River Deben is in 1170. It was owned by the Augustinian Priors for around 350 years until Henry VIII had it confiscated. Passed down through the family, Elizabeth I sold it to Thomas Seckford whose family owned it for over 100 years, followed by several private owners.

In 1793, the present mill was built on the site of earlier ones. By the 1950s, it had become the last working tide mill in the country, but in 1957 finally closed. It was saved in 1968, restored and opened to the public in 1973. Recently, further protection and restoration work has brought it back into use as a fully working tide mill as well being a fascinating and remarkable living example of our industrial and cultural heritage.

Here at the Crown we make great use of the fantastic flour produced at the mill.
