AlexBeckett5285.DSC3714ShireHall.jpgThe town of Woodbridge standing on the banks of the River Deben is situated eight miles north-east of the Suffolk County Town of Ipswich.

It has many places of historical and architectural interest and the narrow streets in the town centre abound in picturesque buildings and ancient inns.  

Woodbridge can be reached easily by road and rail. It is situated just off the main trunk road A12.

The B1079 into Woodbridge will take you to the Shire Hall at Market Hill.

Built in 1575 by Thomas Seckford of the Court of Requests to Queen Elizabeth I, the Shire Hall has been a focal point of the town for over 400 years.

Originally a sessions hall above and a corn market below, it was restored in 1864 and used as a Magistrates Court.

In 1987 it was bought by the Town Council as its Council Chamber and adjoining offices.
