Turkey Hall - a Memory of Laxfield.

I'm now 66, and I remember my father, George Frederick Alderton (Fred) who lived in Canbury Park Road, Kingston on Thames, saying that he spent a holiday at Turkey Hall when he was very young, about 4 or 5 years old. He remembered riding on the neck of a huge shire horse, and holding on to its ears. I also recall him saying that the name 'Alderton' was quite common in Suffolk, so perhaps he was visiting a relative.
