Top rock band The Arctic Monkeys have been recording new music in Suffolk, it has been reported.
It is understood that the chart-topping band have been recording their seventh album at the former monastery Butley Priory near Woodbridge.
According to the website of Butley Priory, the band stayed throughout June to record the album.
A post read: "Musicians love the acoustics in the Great Hall and Drawing room, with their huge vaulted ceilings.
"Being serenaded while watering and weeding the garden, listening to the double bass, drums and piano wafting out of the open double doors, was pretty nice."

The priory, between Woodbridge and Orford, is now a venue for events, weddings and other private functions.
