Love of Place, Love of The Suffolk Coast, and a Real Passion For Sharing

Published : Wed 31st Oct

The Suffolk landscape is home to some incredible archaeology and stories of a bygone era. Possibly the most famous in this area of outstanding natural beauty is the Burial of Kings at Sutton Hoo. Famous for being the site of an incredible discovery of Anglo-Saxon remains, including the iconic  Anglo-Saxon Sutton Hoo helmet. Sutton Hoo has captured the imagination of thousands of people for centuries. One of those people is General Manager, Nick Collinson.

Nick joined the National Trust 10 months ago and has been kind enough to send us a video update detailing his work and what inspires him to really be part of the changes happening at this exciting location.

The General Manager Portfolio covers more areas than just Sutton Hoo, including Orford Ness National Nature Reserve and Dunwich Heath amongst others. Nick was born and brought up on the Suffolk coast and has a great love for the area in which he is now bringing up his own family, and for sharing his passion for place with members and visitors to the area

In the words of David Attenborough: “No one will protect what they don't care about, and no one will care about what they have never experienced”.


 The Suffolk Coast is just one of our many areas looked after by talented General Managers across the country. Click here to find out more information about becoming a General Manager with the National Trust.
