Working the first oak
On the 23rd June, Woodbridge is holding its annual Regatta to celebrate the river Deben and all things maritime that surround it. The Sutton Hoo’s Ship’s Company will be contributing to this by starting to work the first oak tree from Crown Estates. A number of Ship’s Co. Volunteers will be demonstrating ancient woodworking skills to start to turn the oak into planks and some willow into treenails.
There will also be demonstrations of spinning and rivet making to show other skills required to build a Saxon Ship
