THORPENESS The village of Thorpeness was conceived as an idea by Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie who wanted to create a corner of 'Merrie ol' England' by the sea. It was built between 1910 and 1930 with a variety of Elizabethan black and white timbered and gothic style houses. Included in the construction was a man-made lake encompassing several islands, known as The Meare.

Here you can hire rowing boats, canoes or dinghies. The main features of Thorpness are the Windmill, now restored to working order and open to the public (May - September weekends 11.00am - 1.00pm/2.00pm 5.00pm and weekdays July - August 2.00 - 5.00pm; Admission Adults: 50p;Children: Free) and the so called 'House in the Clouds' which is now a holiday home. For more details of these please refer to the map overleaf.
