The Woodbridge Riverside Trust exists to protect, preserve and enhance the character of the Deben riverside for the benefit of everyone, and to educate people about Woodbridge’s maritime heritage. They are engaged in a fascinating project in the Whisstocks Longshed to create a full-scale replica of the Sutton Hoo Anglo-Saxon royal burial ship. For more information, see their website.
The RDA’s Autumn Meeting on 29th November was well attended with over 150 members present. Giles Merritt, Lead Advisor for Natural England Coast path development in Norfolk and Suffolk, provided a lively presentation about the England Coast Path, with a particular emphasis on Suffolk and the River Deben.
