Bourne Mill, Colchester AA98_17146 Featured Hallam Ashley Collection (1931-1980) Image

Bourne Mill, Colchester AA98_17146

Bourne Mill, Colchester, Essex. This ornate building was erected in 1591 as a fishing lodge on the River Colne by Sir Thomas Lucas, reusing stone and architectural fragments from St John's Abbey which was demolished following the Dissolution of the Monasteries. In the 19th century it was converted into a fulling mill, powered from a mill pond to the rear. In 1833 it was again converted, this time into a flour mill, when the weather boarded hoist loft was added. Photographed by Hallam Ashley in October 1947

Maltings, Stowmarket MF98_01576_08 Featured Hallam Ashley Collection (1931-1980) Image

Maltings, Stowmarket MF98_01576_08

The Maltings, Station Road, Stowmarket, Suffolk. Interior view. Malt, the first process in the making of beer, is traditionally made in a floor maltings. The grain, usually barley, is first soaked in water in big tanks or steeps and is then spread out at a depth of about 30cm over the malthouse floors. When it begins to sprout it is transferred to a kiln where it is heated to stop it growing. Once nearly every town and village in England had a traditional malthouse: today fewer than ten are still in use. Photographed by Hallam Ashley in September 1970

Herring Girls, Great Yarmouth AA98_17150 Featured Hallam Ashley Collection (1931-1980) Image

Herring Girls, Great Yarmouth AA98_17150

Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. A group of women, possibly Scottish herring girls, on the quay with herring boats beyond. Although the herring trade began to decline in the 1930s due to increased competition from a wider range of tinned foods, the herring girls continued to follow the migrating shoals in the early post-War years. Photographed by Hallam Ashley in November 1947
