Robert Simper has lived alongside the River Deben all his life, and in this book he shares his love of the river and the people and communities that live and work alongside it through his own photographs and descriptive text.
Up the River Deben takes us from its dangerous entrance bar at Felixstowe Ferry, up past Ramsholt and Waldringfield to Woodbridge and beyond, above Wilford Bridge to Ufford. 124 colour photographs with Robert’s descriptive text tell the story and history of the River Deben, a beautiful Suffolk river from the wild entrance up to Ufford where the tidal estuary ends and the fresh water river begins. Places covered are Felixstowe Ferry, Bawdsey Ferry, Ramsholt, Hemley, Waldringfield, Martlesham Creek, Woodbridge and Melton and just up to Ufford. In this voyage up this attractive river, in all the seasons of the year, many of the river’s better-known people are portrayed. A worthy successor to the highly popular The Deben River, a black and white photograph history book first published in 1992.
