Woodbridge is a lovely town on the River Deben - and here we find our first idea for a great Day Out! The River is an impressive sight and you can stroll down by the River bank admiring the scenery perhaps take a picnic with family and friends? There's plenty to see and admire on the River bank - lots of boats of course, plus Tide Mill Quay (pictured above) which was fully refurbished in 2004 with the help of a lottery grant.

The ship was discovered in 1938 along with an iconic warrior's helmet & shield, plus gold and silver treasures.
