Houghton Mill is a water-powered mill still in use. Now, it grinds a few hundred kg of flour per week for local speciality bakeries. In its hey-day in the mid 1800s, the mill had 10 millstones in operation and produced 40 tons of flour per day.

They were doing a grinding day when I visited.

The church at Greensted Ongar

The bell tower was built in 1720. The brick extension was built in 1550. The oaken walls of the nave were built in 845. When you consider a mature oak is 400 to 500 years old, these trees were saplings when the Romans were still in Britain.

Framlingham Castle, built 1174, then the current internal buildings were built in the 1600s as a poorhouse. When I visited, an medieval re-enactment society, the Plantagenents, were recreating medieval castle life.
