Once famous for its wool cloth, Hadleigh was amongst the most important wool and market towns in the area. Another medieval town, it lies on the banks of the river Brett.
At the heart of Hadleigh is a rich and important architectural history with origins in Saxon times. A royal town for the 9th century Danish King Guthrum, Hadleigh is amongst the nation's most important archaeological towns. The Deanery Tower and church are really worth a visit during your time in Hadleigh, as is the picturesque high street filled with a variety of independent shops, cafes, pubs and delis as well as a cookery school. If architecture and history are your cup of tea, a walk around Hadleigh town centre is a must.
Just a couple of miles from Hadleigh is the tiny village of Semer, set amidst rolling countryside, the river running through its midst. Another nearby village is Boxford, which as the name suggests sits astridge the river Box. A charming and delightful village to explore, its quiet streets are lined with 17th century properties created for the wealthy wool merchants of the time. There is an old fashioned cavern of a village shop selling everything you might need for your holiday and more, a Post Office and two pubs, The Fleece and The White Hart. In earlier centuries there were several other pubs including the White Horse.
