Woodbridge displayed its Tudor heritage in style, were you there?
Thomas Seckford is a name synonymous with Woodbridge.
A courtier to Elizabeth I, Seckford was a prominent lawyer in his day.
His contribution to the life and structure of the town back in the Elizabethan age are still visible today through many of the major landmarks that he either built or owned at some point during his life.
From the Tidemill to the current home of the junior school at Woodbridge School. Seckford left his mark across the town.
Back in June 1977 Seckford and his creations were very much at the heart of celebrations as Woodbridge put on an Elizabethan
Market around the courtier’s very own Shire Hall.
From Tudor costume to historically appropriate food the event brought residents back into the heart of Seckford’s age.
It wasn’t all serious reenactment though as residents made the most of their own set of stocks, courtesy of drama group the Deben Players.
