The BBC’s Tastes of Britain series will be celebrating local produce, presented by Janet Street Porter, with cooking from chef Brian Turner.

Alongside the Woodbridge Tide Mill, the episode on Suffolk will also include High House Fruit Farm, Sutton Hoo Free Range Chickens, and a few other local gems.

Nigel Barratt, trustee and miller at the Woodbridge mill, said: “It was great to give Janet Street Porter a tour of the mill and to see Brian Turner using our flour, alongside Sutton Hoo chicken, to cook up a delicious dish.

“Nothing’s been confirmed yet but the rumour is that the Suffolk episode will screen on September 16 at 3.30pm on BBC1.”

The mill was one of the first tide mills in England, operating for over 800 years until its closure in 1957, when it was the last working tide mill in the country.
