Ipswich’s waterfront once boasted a huge selection of mills, all of varying sizes. Several have been demolished, some converted into flats, and two remain empty. But not for long, they will soon be flats too.

The large imposing grey building is the R&W Pauls maltings. They had a similar building a short distance away that was nearly twice the height – sadly it was demolished a few years ago to make way for flats.
The smaller white building is the Burtons’ building. This one is strange – it has been chopped in half. The back half has been converted to flats – their view of the river hindered by the half-derelict building – nice! I think they made biscuits here.
