English Heritage:

St James Chapel St James Chapel Lindsey: A pretty thatched 13th-century chapel with lancet windows. Was once a chantry to nearby Lindsey Castle, of which only traces of the motte and bailey earthworks survive, but this chapel survived the Reformation to become a barn, a use to which it was put for nearly 400 years. More info here.
Framlingham Castle Framlingham Castle: A magnificent example of a late 12th-century castle. Built by Roger Bigod, Earl of Norfolk, the castle, together with Framlingham Mere, was designed both as a stronghold and as a symbol of power and status - as befitted one of the most influential people at the court of the Plantagenet kings. Architecturally, the castle is notable for its curtain wall with mural towers, an early example of this design.
Bury Abbey Abbey Bury St Edmunds : The extensive remains of the wealthiest and most powerful Benedictine monastery in England, shrine of St Edmund. They include the complete 14th-century Great Gate and Norman Tower, and the impressive ruins and altered west front of the immense church.
Moulton Moulton Packhorse Bridge: A pretty four-arched late medieval bridge, spanning the River Kennett on the old route from Cambridge to Bury St Edmunds.
Leiston Leiston abbey: One of Suffolk's most impressive monastic ruins, of a 14th-century abbey of Premonstratensian 'white canons', with a 16th-century brick gatehouse.
Saxted Saxtead Green Postmill: This corn mill, whose whole body revolves on its base, was one of many built in Suffolk from the late 13th century. Though milling ceased in 1947, it is still in working order. Climb the stairs to various floors, which are full of fascinating mill machinery.
Orford Orford Castle: The unique polygonal towerkeep of Orford Castle stands beside the pretty town and former port which Henry II also developed here in the 1160s. His aim was to counterbalance the power of turbulent East Anglian barons like Hugh Bigod of Framlingham, and to guard the coast against foreign mercenaries called to their aid.
