Lost Landscapes Recreated



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 its reconstruction has been deduced mainly by footprint & likely construction in keeping with local architecture of the time.
