Manningtree: In the heart of Constable Country 

Manningtree - located in the heart of Constable Country - is well known for its river walks. There is a real community feel and lots of events take place throughout the year.

Our shop’s history dates to 1470

The Sue Ryder shop is set in one of the oldest buildings in Manningtree. Originally called Manningtree House, it looks Georgian but is in fact much older with parts dating back to 1470. It has had many uses over the years: it was a pub called The Ship; the first branch of a bank that later became the NatWest; and in living memory Winters Chemist. The BBC filmed an episode of House Detectives in the building, digging up the floor of the Sue Ryder shop to locate the cellar.

Fresh stock daily including new goods range 

We offer a diverse range of items including vinyl records, jewellery and antiques. We stock a large range of good quality branded clothing at competitive prices. As we put out fresh stock every day you will find something new whenever you choose to visit. We also stock the Sue Ryder new goods range, which includes musical instruments, decorative items for the home and garden, occasion cards and sweets.

For the budget shopper we have bargain baskets at the front of our shop, with a good selection of items from as little as 50p.
