John Constable was born in East Bergholt and so it is appropriate that we begin our guided tour here and take the opportunity to see the very unusual way the bells are rung at the village church.
We will then proceed to Flatford Mill to discover the views that John Constable painted. Here our Blue Badge Guide will take us on a short, optional guided walk to see the scenes of four of John Constable’s paintings including the site of the famous Haywain.
Our final destination of the day will be Dedham, a very attractive village on the Essex/Suffolk border. Dedham’s beautiful main street is lined with Georgian fronted houses alongside old inns, tea rooms, a large arts/crafts centre and an impressive 15th century church. It is also where John Constable went to school.
An optional short guided tour will be offered at Dedham before we depart for home.
