Flatford Mill
Flatford Mill
Flatford Mill is a Grade I listed 18th century watermill built in 1733 in Flatford, East Bergholt, Suffolk, England. Attached to the mill is a 17th century miller's cottage which is also Grade I listed.

The property is located in the heart of Dedham Vale, a typically English rural landscape.

It is noted as the location for works by John Constable, whose father owned the mill. Constable made the mill and its immediate surroundings the subject of many of his most famous paintings. It is the title of one of his most iconic paintings, Flatford Mill, and is in the title or the subject of several other of his largest paintings including Flatford Mill from a lock on the Stour, Flatford Mill from the lock and The Lock. The Hay Wain, which features Willy Lott's Cottage, was painted from the front of the mill. His paintings are in galleries all over the world: Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, Madrid, plus others in Philadelphia, London and elsewhere.

The mill is located just downstream from Bridge Cottage which, along with neighbouring Valley Farm and Willy Lott's Cottage, are leased to the Field Studies Council, a group that uses them as locations for arts-based courses.
