Thorrington Tide Mill
Thorrington is a village and civil parish in the Tendring district of Essex, Englandmarker. It lies 5 km east of Wivenhoemarker and 3 km north of Brightlingseamarker. The striking medieval flint church is dedicated to [[Mary Magdalene], and the patrons of the church are St John's College, Cambridgemarker.

On the west side, the Tenpenny Brook forms the parish boundary between Thorrington and Alresfordmarker. At the point where the brook flows into the Alresford Creek (a branch of the Colne Estuarymarker) stands Thorrington Mill. This is a tide mill built in 1831 and now a Grade II* listed building.

The east and northern boundaries of the parish are bounded by the Saltwater Brook. Where the Saltwater Brook flows into Flag Creek (formerly Borefleet Creeek or Byrflytt) is the former site of another Tidal Mill.

The Colchester to Clacton railway line passes just to the north of the village. Thorrington's stationmarker was opened in 1867, and closed in 1957.

Thorrington is also mentioned in the Domesday book
