The source of the River Deben
The source of the River Deben
This is the recognised Source of the River Deben west of Ulveston Hall, Mickfield. It is either named after Debenham, or Debenham is named after it; nobody is really sure.
River Deben

The recognised source is to the west of Debenham, though a second, higher source runs south from the parish of Bedingfield. The river, which is just over 33 miles long, passes through Woodbridge, where it becomes a tidal estuary before emptying into the North Sea between Felixstowe and Bawdsey at Harwich Haven.

Suffolk Rivers

Suffolk has twenty rivers worthy of the name. The River Waveney and the River Little Ouse form the boundary between Norfolk and Suffolk. The River Stour does the same for Suffolk and Essex. The Alde, the Blyth, the Deben are the main rivers and the others are tributaries or affluents of these.
Among the names of these are the Box, the Lark, the Dove and the Rat.
