Location[edit]

Dallinghoo is a village some 3 miles (4.5 km) north of Woodbridge, Suffolk, England. Formed from Church Road (west) and Pound Hill to the south and branches NE after the centre of the village.

Its 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 also the birthplace of Francis Light, founder of Penang in Malaysia and father of William Light who founded Adelaide in Australia.

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

The Oldest and most important house in Dallinghoo is Whitehouse Farm.

Dallinghoo Hall (TM2754) is 1 km SE from 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]
