About Sutton

Sutton is an old village overlooking the waters of the River Debden as it makes its way towards the sea. It is best known for one of the most important archaeology finds in this country and is where you can see for yourself the uncovered mysteries of an Anglo-Saxon burial ground of Kings, and the treasures contained within.

The site on a spur of land above the Debden was excavated in 1939 when England, if not the world, was thrilled and amazed at the findings, hidden from sight for around 1,300 years in chambers, on a 245 acre site. An Anglo-Saxon 90 ft ship revealed a wealth of gold ornaments belonging to one of the earliest English King's - Raedwald, King of East Anglia, together with his warrior's helmet and shield.

Apart from being able to explore the landscape of the site, an exhibition hall houses a full size reconstruction of the burial chamber and tells the fascinating story of its discovery and contents.

The site has an eyrie yet stirring atmosphere, visitors are immediately aware of the importance of the place and take pride in this historic English discovery.

The site is in the care of the National Trust, and the landscape offers lovely walks with views of the Debden estuary, opportunities for birdwatching, and heath and woodland trails. Several festivals and events are held throughout the year, these include an Anglo-Saxon Festival.

The surrounding region offers a pleasant experience with plenty of old cottages to be seen as well as charming Victorian and Edwardian architecture. Sutton church is interesting, this stands in a quiet tree lined churchyard which has several old graves and tombstones.

This is an excellent centre for exploring the rivers Debden and Orwell, it offers opportunities for sailing, surfing and for visiting some of the prettiest villages along the Suffolk coast.
