Details

Probably one of the most compelling reasons to visit Flatford is to discover what made John Constable famous.

Constable spent his entire childhood in the Dedham Vale and these memories sustained him for life. The hamlet of Flatford and the landscape of the Stour Valley dominated his paintings from the early 1800s.

A year before John’s birth the Constable family moved from a house next door to the mill to a mansion in East Bergholt.John Constable spent most of his school life at Dedham Grammar School, walking across the fields each day from his home in East Bergholt.

After he left school Constable went to work at his father’s windmill in East Bergholt and in his spare time he used to sketch the landscapes.

Visit the exhibition to find out the full story and at the same time take in the scenes that Constable painted.
