There doesn't seem to be anything on the OS map, but my research suggests this is the largest Iron age fort in Suffolk. It has double ramparts, and a church is built inside them. It's St Botolph's church - for some reason his shrivelled relics were kept here for 50 years before being taken to Bury St Edmunds (sic).
Strangely there is another church about quarter of a mile down the road.
