Taken from the "summit" (this is Suffolk!)
Yachts at anchor on the Butley River, old WW2 anti-aircraft battery in the distance, adjacent to clay sea-wall which hides the River Ore. Beyond is the main shipping channel to Felixstowe and Harwich harbours.
Surrounded by marshland, and rivers, the hill rises 15 meters above sea level, enough advantage to have become a Saxon settlement in the first century AD. Over 200 male skeletons, excavated during quarrying suggest that it was also the site of a battle, reputedly between King Edmund's army and invading vikings. Today it has a mystical atmosphere, lonely, with wide views over rivers, dykes, reed beds and pastures, towards the open sea and passing ships.
