Cutting from 'Daily Telegraph' of a submission by H. J. Mason linking work done on Woodbridge tide mill with other tide mills at Fingringhoe, St.Osyth and Thorrington in the 20th century.

Thorrington Mill with Thames barges

Note on back reads "Up until 1929, when this was taken, farmers had their grain ground at this mill and flour was barged to London. Falling into decay, the mill was bought by Mr T A Glover and used to store and dry seed grown on the Mill Farm. The creek is not now navigable for barges."
