Rohan Woodbridge.

Set on the Thoroughfare of historic Woodbridge Town, Rohan welcomes you to a beautiful tidal river and many interesting sites and buildings, an area of great natural beauty, a vibrant town and a good walking area. Rohan is the most dog friendly clothing shop in town! The Thoroughfare was recently voted one of the Top 10 High Streets in the UK according to The Sunday Times.

Visit the Rohan shop and meet Karen, Suzanne, Claudia, Steve, Lois, Meg and Nick. We can kit you out for a Safari or an afternoon walking the dog and everything in between. We’ll give you honest advice and suggest the most appropriate clothing according to your needs.

At Rohan Woodbridge we have staff with experience of the following countries and regions:

United Kingdom
Dominican Republic
North Africa including Egypt and Morocco

If you are contemplating travelling to any of these destinations then why not pop in and pick our brains? We have the knowledge and the gear to suit you.
Check out our world map, maybe plan a trip or remember a past adventure. If you have a picture of yourself in Rohan clothing we’d love to put a copy up on the map for all to enjoy.

Got an old piece of Rohan clothing? Can we borrow it to display on the wall please?

Other attractions in Woodbridge include:
Honey & Harvey, an independent coffee shop opposite Rohan and a step up from the usual high street chains.

Sutton Hoo is just the other side of the Deben from the Tide Mill and can be reached by car or on foot. The 7th Century burial mound of King Redwald discovered on the eve of World War Two and containing some stunning artefacts. A great visit for kids and adults alike. A pleasant walk from Woodbridge along the banks of the River Deben.

Woodbridge lays credible claim to The Grand Old Duke of York of nursery rhyme fame. He’d march his men down from what is now Old Barrack Road to Market Hill (neither up nor down) and from there down to the river where the troops would stand on the edge of the Tide Mill Pool (now a marina) and have target practice across the river into Ferry Cliff where musket balls are still occasionally found.

Back in Woodbridge and in need of sustenance? Try the Old Bell and Steelyard on New Street or the Anchor at the bottom of Quay Street, opposite the railway station. Both pubs are well run and friendly and have good beer and good food.

“Rohan Woodbridge customers, Mr. and Mrs. Oldfield who recently visited the Perito Moreno glacier in southern Argentina. They are pictured here standing by the shop counter and in front of the backdrop which is the very Perito Moreno glacier on which they stood. Beside them are two pictures they have given us showing them on the glacier.How cool (in several ways) is that?

    Carrying a laptop or large tablet on business but don’t want to carry an unwieldly briefcase to protect your technology and the work it holds?

    You won’t be surprised to hear that here at Rohan we have the answer.

    The Rohan Organiser at only £29.00 is a slim line, wadded laptop carry case with additional organiser pockets. Tough and comfortable to carry this is the answer you may not even have known you had a question for.

    See you soon.

    Did you know that May was National Walking Month?

    I must admit I didn’t until I saw the article on Rohantime. There are so many days, weeks and months vying for your attention promoting either more or more often less healthy lifestyles.

    A walking month sounds like an eminently good idea to try to get out and about a bit more often or to go a bit further than before. I’m off to Derbyshire for the weekend but do enjoy walking around in Suffolk where it is perceived as flat but although we have nothing to rival Cross Fell on the Pennine Way there are hills to go up and down and to give a different view once you get to the top.

    Wherever and how far you go, enjoy the outdoors.

  15. Rohan Woodbridge Outdoor and Travel Clothing.

    This week at Rohan we’re focussing on Insect Shield clothing which keeps bugs off.

    “This permethrin-based treatment is invisible, odourless and impairs the ability of insects including mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, fleas, chiggers and midges to land, and so reduces bites. It’s extremely durable too – and is designed to last for the lifetime of the product.”

    An example of how effective this can be came from a couple who visited the Pantanal region of Brazil. The wife bought treated shirts and trousers whilst her husband looked on and announced that he wasn’t susceptible to mosquito bites and so he didn’t need mosquito proof clothing.

    Once they had been in the Pantanal for a couple of days he counted the mosquito bites on his body but gave up on reaching 150.

    This is just to illustrate that you may be impervious to British mosquitos* but in foreign climes this may not hold true.

    We can kit you out in hats, scarves, tops, trousers and socks impregnated with Insect Shield so that you don’t become the plat du jour.

    On a personal note I’d recommend wearing lighter coloured clothing as mosquitos are drawn to darker colours/area. This is why you will often find your ankles being attacked under the table in restaurants in some far flung corner of the world.

    *Other biting insects are available.
