Local places of interest
Over the centuries Dunwich has been a Roman fort, the capital of a Saxon Kingdom and a major Christian centre. By the 11th Century it was one of the greatest ports on the East Coast of Britain with a population of 4000. At one point Dunwich was home to 13 churches. Over the years all bar one, the current St James Church, have been lost to the North Sea. Nowadays, the population of Dunwich is little over 60 (we have added considerably to this number by bringing 3 new permanent residents, 3 rescue dogs and 2 rescue ponies to the village!) but still has a lovely pub, ‘The Ship Inn’ along with a fish & chip café on the beach an of course Dingle Hill Tearooms right next door to Dingle Marsh Barns and also owned by the Barham family.
The Dunwich museum, situated on St James Street is really worth a visit, it’s interesting and caters to both adults & children. Run by volunteers from the village we do like to support this museum as we believe Dunwich and it’s history is really worth knowing about.
It goes without saying that Dunwich has some beautiful walks to explore. We have lived in the local area all our lives and Sophie still get’s lost sometimes on horse rides in the forest having found yet another trail.
