Bury St Edmunds and the Wool Towns

This is a truly intriguing part of Suffolk filled with historical towns and villages and picturesque countryside. The Wool Towns are unique to Suffolk and include Lavenham, Long Melford, Clare, Sudbury and Hadleigh.

Bury St Edmunds itself is an exciting area with so much to offer. Not far from Bury are many idyllic villages including Stanton, Walsham-le-Willows and Upthorpe. All are ideally placed for exploring this pretty corner of the county and beyond, with good access to the rest of Suffolk as well as Cambridgeshire.

Lavenham is one of the better known Wool Towns. Its streets are lined by delightful timber framed medieval buildings with bowing walls and deeply pitched traditional Suffolk roofs; its magnificent Market Place houses the wonderful Guild Hall (NT), and Little Hall, an outstanding restaurant - The Great House and several delightful pubs. Lavenham is well known for its fascinating and charming galleries and shops and fine church. The countryside around the town is criss-crossed with footpaths.

From one stunning village to another. Monks Eleigh is a very painterly village. The hill leads down past the church and the village pub to The Street where there are some delightful Suffolk cottages and a lovely village pub serving excellent food.

Midway between Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury, Lawshall is a charming old village, its Grade 1 listed church - All Saints - dating back to the 15th century. Lawshall Hall, a rather grand old building visited by Queen Elizabeth I, was thought to have been converted from an ancient monastery. Its 18th century pub, The Swan, has a collection of World War 1 coins left by local soldiers.

Sudbury on the Essex Suffolk border has, for centuries, been the home of British silk production, and it is from here that the silk for royal wedding dresses is made. Standing beside the Stour River, Sudbury has many fine ancient buildings and is famous for its Great Common, a wonderful unspoilt wildlife area where cattle graze the rich grasses undeterred by the occasional canoeist, walkers and birdwatchers.
