About the Area Hadleigh is a small market town situated approximately 15 miles from Colchester, 10 miles from Manningtree from (where there is a mainline rail connection to London's Liverpool Street Station, journey time approximately 60 minutes) and approximately 10 miles from Ipswich.
Hadleigh sits in the heart of glorious South Suffolk, an area recognised as having some of Britain's best kept natural beauty and heritage.
From the 14th to 17th century, the woollen-cloth industry made Hadleigh prosperous. Today, this small town gently displays its distinctly unspoilt history, having carefully preserved so much of it's much loved past. With many listed buildings, there is plenty to see.
The town benefits from a busy high street with just the right eclectic mix of shops, services, restaurants, cafés and pubs. The town also benefits from a good range of other amenities which include a swimming pool, high school, primary school, doctors, dentist and library.
Vendor’s Statement So sad to say farewell to No.48. It has been such a happy house. Precious memories of:- early morning in the conservatory seeing the gilding of the tree tops down by the river, at day's end seeing the ever changing, beautiful western sky, winter's afternoon surrounded by our precious books in the snug, summer lunches and dinners on the terrace with friends and family – so many days of wine and roses. So lucky to have had all that and in addition to be able to access shops, public transport and all the many events that happen in Hadleigh and it is all there within a five minute walk. Lucky No.48".
