After making the discovery at around 6.40am the woman drove to Felixstowe police station to report what she had seen and officers were immediately dispatched to the scene, near to the Bucklesham turn-off.
The wood, almost opposite Morston Hall, Trimley St Martin, is a remote place and somewhere regularly used by the public.
Hidden within the site is a derelict red-brick building which Suffolk Coastal district council once earmarked as its emergency headquarters in a nuclear attack.
