What can you tell me about Kettleburgh?
On the banks of the River Deben in rolling, largely arable and wooded countryside, Kettleburgh is a village of just over one hundred dwellings. Our near neighbours are Easton, Brandeston and Hoo. Our neighbouring large town is Framlingham, with Wickham Market and Woodbridge also near to hand.
The Kettleburgh Man depicted on the village sign, surveying the fields and with axe in hand, is believed to be of Norse origin.
St Andrew's Church is picturesquely situated at the North of the village.
The Chequers Inn can be found on the Brandeston to Easton Road, with a garden that extends to the river.
There are two open spaces:
The Village Pound, of ancient origin, is now a tranquil tree filled area close to the river. You can reach the Pound from Mill Lane and from the footpath which leads away from the pub garden at the bottom of the Chequers car park.
The Village Green, created in 2005, lies in the centre of the village and can be reached from the footpath opposite the Village Hall and from Church Road. It is managed by the Kettleburgh Green Trust.
The Village Hall is situated in The Street and provides a meeting place and venue for all kinds of events.
The nearest rail service is from Wickham Market station, which is actually situated in Campsea Ashe. There is a bus service between Ipswich and Framlingham. Suffolk County Council have created a map of all bus and rail services within the county.
