Thorrington Tide Mill
Thorrington Tide Mill
The tide mill, grain went up through the lucum, flour went out via a shoot from door in the middle of the mill. This shoot went onto a barge ready for London. Horse manure was brought in from London and flour went out. Hygienic or what!
Thorrington Tide Mill

Thorrington tide mill in a 19th century tide mill built on the site of an earlier mill. It was rebuilt in 1831 from the previous structure. There are four floors, three millstones (one steam driven), flour sieve, sack hoist and breastshot wheel. The mill is in need of repair due to an incident a few years ago when the overflowing millpond started the mill, running dry it burnt out several bearings.
It is well worth a look, free entry with informative guides. Open 4th Sunday of the month in summer.
