Orford

Orford is a coastal town and former port, twelve miles east of Woodbridge.  Orford Castle was built between 1165 and 1173, it is a unique polygon building of eighteen sides, standing on the summit of a hill.  The church is dedicated to St Bartholomew and was built at about the same time as the castle.  The parish registers date back to 1538.
