Dallinghoo is a village about three miles (5 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 Village Hall is on Church Road near its junction with Pound Hill, a little north of the village at 52°08′47″N 1°18′45″E / 52.1464°N 1.3124°E / 52.1464; 1.3124.

Buildings[edit]

Dallinghoo's church was originally a large building with a central tower but the chancel has since been destroyed.[2] The Church also had connections with nearby Letheringham Abbey.

People[edit]

Dallinghoo is the birthplace of Francis Light, founder of Penang in Malaysia and father of William Light, the founder of Adelaide in Australia.[3]

Press[edit]

Dallinghoo was featured in the press in 2009 after £500,000 worth of Iceni gold coins were found in a field.[4]
