Experience the sights, sounds and drama of the mill as wheels and stones turn, grinding the grain as they have done for many hundreds of years.

At Woodbridge Tide Mill, man has worked for over 800 years harnessing the totally reliable and predictable green energy from the tides to drive a mill producing flour and animal feed. This was the last commercially working tide mill in the UK and it has now been restored to working order.

When tides permit the five metre English oak waterwheel will turn the machinery, and grain will be milled to produce flour. An imaginative timeline records the Tide Mill’s long history and fascinating owners and is complemented by interactive models, audio stations, videos, display panels, life-size cut-outs of the miller’s family and cats. There’s also a children’s corner and dressing-up box.
