A village situated on the boarder between Suffolk and Essex and benefiting from the very best influences of both.
The village is broadly famous for its historical connections with John Constable RA and the landscape he painted is still very much the same today. The village is warm and inviting with a range of clubs and opportunities to get involved with village life. Events such as the annual Pram Race define the village feel and bring people together.
