Pictures of Eye
in the county of Suffolk
A walk around the town reveals a wealth of lovely 19th-century buildings and a fine 16th-century guildhall. Chippenhall Hall, now a gracious country hotel, is a heavily beamed listed Tudor building, a house of this site was originally mentioned in the Doomsday Book. Other buildings of note include the Priory of St.Peter, founded as a Benedictine Monastery in 1066 and beautiful Linden House, dating 16th-century. Interestingly, Linden House was one of the setting for Agatha Christie's Miss Marple.
In its tranquil setting on the River Dove, Eye offers a peaceful harmonious place where the visitor can unwind, relax and throw away the cares of modern life. It is surrounded by a patchwork of villages which include Southwold, Walberwick, Alderborough, Orford and Dunwich. It is with easy driving distance of Diss where you will find a beautiful mere, a haven for wildfowl. Also close-by is Billingford Mill and Bomb Group 100th Museum.
