A Suffolk landmark hosted guests from Illinois as part of an information exchange.

The group from Fulton Mill spent three days in Woodbridge, where they visited the Tide Mill to share ideas and information.

Nigel Barratt, of Woodbridge Tide Mill Trust, called it a “thoroughly useful and insightful exchange” and a chance to share ideas on fundraising and ways to increase footfall.

Chris Harrold, chairman of Choose Woodbridge, said that to have interest from the USA was testament to the continued success of the Tide Mill.
