About Theberton

Built in the valley of the Minsmere river, and leading towards coastal marshes, Theberton was recorded in Domesday as "Thewardetuna". The thatched church contains a piece of Zeppelin shot down here in 1917. Sixteen German crew were killed and are buried in the churchyard. The Hall was the birthplace of the 19th cent. Travel writer, Charles Montague Doughty. The parish is twinned with Thebarton, South Australia.

The ruined base is all that remains of a tower mill which was moved to Theberton from Little Glemham in about 1730. It worked until about 1920 and was demolished by 1930.
