We had the opportunity to attend the recent Open Day (29th May 16) at Mildenhall Warren. We would like to thank everybody there on showing us around and answering our questions. The boys loved the place and especially being treated as young adults. Thank you again from the Abedin Family.

Thank you for your feedback. The Friends of Thetford Forest organized the Open Day and worked with the Forestry Commission to restore the Warren Lodge. I've passed on your message them. You can find out more about the Friends at

May I have your permission to reproduce the photograph at the head of this page in an article in Transactions of the Ancient Monuments Society? This is an academic publication issued only to members; the print run is 1,900. It will of course be fully acknowledged to yourselves. If so, can you send me the image in a form which I can transmit to the editor?
