Long Melford

Long Melford is a tiny village about 20-30 minutes south of Bury St Edmunds. It is a great day out, spending about a half a day at Kentwell Hall, have lunch or tea in the village, popping in the many tiny shops, visit to the church that looks down  and 1-2 hours at Melford Hall.

Like many other villages in the local area, Long Melford was a wealth wool town. You can tell this by the huge church at the top of the hill.

There are many shops in this village which are worth popping in to include antique shops. The shops here are a mixture to support the local population and cater to tourists.

The church is a lovely building. It was built in the 15th century. Most of the glass that you can see here is medieval. The tower is modern, built in 1903, replacing the one that was struck by lightning.

Bug and I really enjoyed ourselves and I think it makes for a great full day out.

All the Best!
