Why Rum Owd Dew (Our Story)

My name is Danny, and I’m the founder of Rum Owd Dew. There is very little information about the Suffolk dialect on the web, which led to the creation of this site.

I was born in East Anglia and grew up on the Suffolk / Norfolk Waveney border. My family heritage and history is steeped in Suffolk for as many generations as I can research back to.

This website aims to share my love of Suffolk and its colourful language.
