Deben  Suffolk


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Deben like this:

DEBEN (The), a river of Suffolk. It rises in the north-western vicinity of Debenham; and runs about 30 miles, prevailingly south-south-eastward, but with a great curvature, past Brandeston, Wickham-Market, Wood-bridge, and Hanley, to the sea, 4½ miles NNE of the mouth of Harwich harbour. It has a total course of about 30 miles; and is estuarial and navigable, over the last 8½ miles, from Woodbridge to the sea.
