Woodbridge Tide Mill

Tide Mill Way, WOODBRIDGE, IP12 1BY

Situated on a busy quayside, this unique and beautiful building looks over towards the historic site of Sutton Hoo Ship Burial. There has been a Tide Mill on this site since 1170. The present building dates from 1793 and contains fully restored machinery from that date and was the last commercially working tide mill in the UK. Working models, information boards, audio and visual stations describe the history, the people and explain how it works. Games and puzzles to entertain the young children. Something for all the family. Special milling days demonstrate the milling process and flour produced is on sale. The machinery is operated using tidal power whenever the tides permit.
