Great Wood Hill is the highest point in the county of Suffolk. At 128 m (420 ft), it is also the highest point of the Newmarket Ridge, a ridge approximately 40 miles long that starts in Hertfordshire and ends near Sudbury in Suffolk, passing through Essex and south-east Cambridgeshire along the way.
The top of the hill is situated just south of the village of Chedburgh, off from the A143. It is within a small patch of woodland, reached by a nearby road that runs alongside the wood. A communications mast is located nearby.
