Dallinghoo is a village about three miles (4.8 km) north of Woodbridge, Suffolk, England.

Location[edit]

Dallinghoo is formed from Church Road to the west, Pound Hill to the south and branches northeast after the centre of the village.

Dallinghoo's church was originally a large building with a central tower but the chancel has since been destroyed. The Church also had connections with nearby Letheringham Abbey.

Dallinghoo is the birthplace of Francis Light, founder of Penang in Malaysia and father of William Light, the founder of Adelaide in Australia.

Dallinghoo Village Hall (TM2654) is off Pound Hill a little north of the village.

Press[edit]

Dallinghoo has featured in the press in 2009 after £500,000 worth of Iceni gold coins were found in a field.[1]
