We will enjoy a slower pace of life today, discovering the idyllic villages on our Constable country tour. We visit East Bergholt, birthplace of the famous painter, with its church whose bells are housed upside down in a 16thc bell cage in the church yard. From the church take a short stroll down quiet lanes to Flatford Mill; the scene of one of Constable's most famous paintings (entry not included). The mill is now owned by the National Trust. We then stroll in Constables footsteps to the town of Dedham, where he attended school and later used as subject to a lot of his paintings. Dedham is home to the Munnings Art Museum and an art & craft centre. This afternoon we enjoy a nostalgic visit to the Tiptree Jam Shop, Tea Room and Museum.
