Sutton Hoo Anglo Saxon ship burial

Sutton Hoo

If you have Netflix you may have seen the recently released film called The Dig starring Ralph Fiennes and Carey Mulligan.

It is the story of the discovery and excavation of an Anglo Saxon ship burial in Suffolk which revealed over 250 items including the famous gold helmet.

The site is now managed by the National Trust and is located about 15 miles from Stanley Cottage so makes for a wonderful, “must-see” day-trip.

Sutton Hoo is just one of the many wonderful locations within easy reach of Stanley Cottage.
