More about this scene

This is Fort Green Mill. It has a brick tower which once had four patent sails and a fantail. It was converted to a private house in 1902. The scene is now little different from that shown in the photograph.

Other Memories from Aldeburgh

This little girl could be me! I spent many happy hours playing with my model boat here, while visiting my grandmother, Ruth Knowles from Fawcett Road in the town. What happy memories!

In the 60's the tower was derelict but us children could get across the very unsafe wooden bridge across the moat and explore the inside. Very dangerous with rotten floors and deep drops!
