Local information to help you with your journey of purchasing a home in the historic Suffolk town of Hadleigh or the surrounding villages of Kersey, Polstead, Layham, Whatfield, Elmsett, Chelsworth and Bildeston. Local property information by local people.
With a population of about 9,500 Hadleigh is growing with new developments around the perimeter of the town. But that doesn’t mean it’s losing its character. Because of well protected listed buildings and conservation areas, Hadleigh remains an historic market town that crosses the generational divide. When it comes to shopping, the High Street offers everything from ironmongery and clothing to waffles, pet food and jewellery. And for those who like to get everything in a single shop, there are a couple of supermarkets on the edge of town too.
Hadleigh itself has a High School and three Junior Schools and some of the surrounding villages of Kersey, Whatfield, Elmsett, Chelsworth and Bildeston boast thriving Junior Schools.
There are numerous local sports clubs, gyms and swimming pools for leisure activities as well as some of the most beautiful rolling Suffolk countryside running next to the river Brett. Additionally, there is a concealed industrial estate on the Northern edge of town containing local and national businesses that could offer local employment.
Other scenic towns for property in the South East area of Suffolk are Southwold, Aldeburgh, Framlingham, Woodbridge, Felixstowe, Bury St Edmunds and Lavenham. If you don’t mind the idea of rural Essex as a possibility, just a couple of miles over the boarder you’ll find the towns of Dedham and Manningtree.
