John Constable, Flatford  Mill,
Then and Now

Flatford, Suffolk

Location Guide

This view looks from the bridge by Bridge Cottage east to the lock, right, and Flatford Mill left. The tow path had to run alongside the river so horses could pull the boats, Taday, we have tress growing on the side in the river and the path the wrong side of the trees. Two Boys Fishing is the reverse of this from the lock looking back to the bridge, while Boat Building near Flatford Mil, is just off the left of this painting by the boats.

Unfortunately you cannot see this view today as there are just too many trees.

This is today's view from about the same position

We go on to the bridge to get around the trees

From the centre of the bridge looking down we can see where the mill stream breaks away from the lock.

From nearer to this junction we can see the two channels.

Moving down we get to the lock,

and beyond the Lock we get the first real view of Flatford Mill, but we are now at a completely different angle.
