Photographer's Note

This is the second of two views of the River Orwell at Pin Mill. This view looks up the river towards Ipswich. Pin Mill is a hamlet on the south bank of the tidal River Orwell, located on the Shotley peninsula in south Suffolk. Pin Mill is now generally known for the historic Butt & Oyster public house and for sailing. It was once a busy landing point for ship-borne cargo, a centre for the repair of Thames sailing barges and home to many small industries such as sail making, a maltings (now a workshop) and a brickyard. The east coast has a long history of smuggling, in which Pin Mill and the Butt and Oyster pub allegedly played key parts.
The river is tidal at this point and with a number of high tides this week The river can be seen at high tide in this shot
