Stoke Gabriel Quay c. 1865
Very few images exist of the Tide Mill, which seems to have disappeared by about 1870.
The few old photos & paintings which do exist all show it from downstream, looking north easterly towards it.
This is a speculative view of the tide mill & surrounding buildings looking south west, based on information gained from the images mentioned, the footprints on the early OS & tithe maps & deductions made from the practicality of layout; e.g. As the mill building had workings at both ends it is most likely the doorway onto the quay was central – etc.
Only glimpses exist of the thatched cottage on early images, and it’s reconstruction has been deduced mainly by footprint & likely construction in keeping with local architecture of the time.
