Suffolk Guide

The County of Suffolk is in the East of England. Much of the county is low lying although there are a few hills, especially in the west. Arable land predominates and contrasts with the watery landscape of The Broads in the north. A notable feature are the wide estuaries that offer a habitat for a variety of birds. The Suffolk Coast and Heaths is the only National Landscape (formerly AONB) in the county. The highest point is Great Wood Hill, near the village of Rede, which reaches 128 metres (420 ft).
