Location for The Hay Wain
Location for The Hay Wain
Looking from Flatford Mill to Willy Lott's Cottage, this was the setting for The Hay Wain by John Constable - see LinkExternal link

The 400 year old Willy Lott's Cottage (now Willy Lott's House) is the same, although Constable slightly re-orientated it to squeeze it in to the painting. Other features have changed - the water level is higher and the trees on the right blot out any view of the water meadows across the river in Essex. See LinkExternal link for more information.
