Other information Flatford - Other information - Nearby East Bergholt is the birthplace of the painter John Constable. "Flatford Mill"(photo right) by John Constable (1776-1837). Although there is no public access today to Flatford Mill or the other old buildings in the village, the National Trust do run guided walks to point out the sites that Constable illustrated in his works, and to give some background information on the relevant buildings. Bridge Cottage is a tiny 16th century thatched cottage beside the river, now owned by the National Trust, which houses a permanent exhibition of Constable's work, including several showing the delightful 'Bridge Cottage', and offers the opportunity of viewing the restored dry dock. From the gate-post of Willy Lott's cottage, Constable captured the rustic scene across the old mill pond, depicted in 'The Haywain', probably the most well-known of all his paintings.
