Flatford Mill Suffolk (Willy Lott's House)

Located across the millstream from Flatford Mill is Willy Lott’s House, famously known for being depicted in one of Constable’s most iconic paintings The Hay-Wain

The farmhouse was originally named Gibbonsgate Farm after the adjacent field but in the early 1900s when there was a revival of interest in John Constable, it was renamed Willy Lott’s House after being called so in a number of Constable’s paintings

Willy Lott was not just a local farmer but also a good friend of the Constable family, and it is believed that Willy only ever spent four nights out of his long 84-year life away from his home
