Description: Situated on the shoreline to the east of the harbour, the area known as Tidemills was once a flourishing village with some 100 residents. Mills were built on the flat marshland to grind flour in the 1760s, using the power of the tide to drive the stones. A spur from the main railway line provided the means to transport the flour and the village had its own station, Tidemills Halt. The mills ended their productive life in the late nineteenth century and today foundation walls, the odd section of railway and some of the old mill estuary can be seen.
