THE CROWN FLOOR

See the crown wheel with its wooden teeth and how it transfers power to the sack hoist and flour dresser. Learn about the place of the Tide Mill in the ‘Grain to Bread’ story.

Here, near the top of the mill, the wonderful views over the River Deben are not to be missed whatever the state of the tide. The agricultural cycle, the route of grain to flour and how bread is made completes our story and the Tide Mill’s part in it. Learn how wholemeal flour was dressed to give finer flour.

Why not play the ‘Grain Detective Game’ or listen to the audio station stories while the children dress up as the miller and his family?

You can also see the miller’s log which reveals the details of daily work and income.
