Woodbridge Tide Mill

Tide Mill Logo

A rare example of a 18th Century tide mill restored to working order.

When Woodbridge Tide Mill closed in 1957 it was the last commercial working tide mill in England. It is now one of only two tide mills in the country still producing stoneground wholemeal flour. The current mill is 230 years old but the earliest known mill on the same site was built in the 12th century. It is managed and maintained by volunteers, dedicated to sustaining this wonderful example of a bygone age. It is a popular visitor attraction and educational resource and continues to produce genuine stoneground flour.

The Tide Mill also welcomes educational school visits. The students can see tidal power in action, grind their own flour and get a sense of the ingenuity, mechanics and engineering that was used over 800 years ago when Woodbridge Tide Mill was built. The exhibits also how the pivotal role Woodbridge Tide Mill played in Woodbridge’s rich history and the prosperity of the town.
