The walk down to the River Deben viewing point wasn't too hard going although we didn't walk the whole circular route but doubled back after getting as close to the river as the paths would allow.
We saw butterflies and dragonflies along the walk and I've never seen so many sweet chestnuts on the trees and strewn across the ground.
Let's cross the river to Woodbridge for a while. We'd stopped there on our way to Sutton Hoo and parked near the Co-op and a fresh fish stall. It was a short walk to find the Tide Mill and nearby Museum and The Long Shed.
I haven't yet mentioned the exhibition in the High Hall at Sutton Hoo. Rendlesham Revealed: The Heart of a Kingdon AD400-800 tells the story of the Anglo Saxon Settlement in the Deben Valley. It was one of the largest and wealthiest at that time.
I did take a couple of quick photos. The exhibition covers two or three burials from recent excavatons one of a young woman found quite recently and also that of a warrior. We also meet other characters along the way.
We decided to come back later but that didn't happen as it was still very busy so I didn't get a full appreciation of the exhibits which were a mixture of both original and replica items. The exhibition runs until the 29th of this month.
