De Thornsche Molen is een wipkorenmolen in de Ooijpolder bij Persingen en Wercheren.

De oorspronkelijke molen stamde uit de vijftiende eeuw en stond aan de Kapitteldijk, bij de grens met Duitsland (grenspaal 642). De molen werd door een storm in november 1940 zwaar beschadigd en in 1941 hersteld. In september 1944 werd de molen tijdens de operatie Market Garden geheel verwoest.

De molen is herbouwd en sinds najaar 2015 weer draaivaardig.
