About

Small riverside town, noted for its swans. In the 18th C. plans were developed to turn Mistley into a saltwater spa. Two reminders from this failed scheme, are the swan fountain and Mistley Towers - Robert Adam's twin neoclassical structures. The Thorn Hotel has connections with Matthew Hopkins, the 17th C. Witchfinder General.

The eastern tower of the Mistley Towers was originally the chancel of the church and inside you can still see its painted commandment boards and a painted representation of the Holy Trinity on the ceiling. The western tower is identical internally, though without the painted decoration.
