The mill is situated on the A1120 tourist route in Suffolk and is quite eye catching as you drive through the village of Saxtead.

A Visit to The Red House Aldeburgh

The Red House Aldeburgh
A visit to The Red House Aldeburgh was a last minute decision. That's what I love about Heritage Open Days - its a great way of exploring places that you haven't even thought of visiting and learning something new.
