The local area guide to living in Brandon

Situated in the ancient Breks, an area straddling Norfolk and Suffolk, and blanketed in forestry and heathland, Brandon is a market town with a historic tale to tell. With activity spanning back to the Stone Age, the folk of Brandon were mostly known for their work extracting flint from the local mines and their trade in rabbit fur.

According to the Domesday Book, there were only 25 households in this storied town back in 1086. After World War Two, an influx of servicemen from Poland settled in Brandon as did the Americans after the Cold War – which helped jolt the number of permanent residents in this peaceful town. To this day, the civil parish located in the county of Suffolk - in the Forest Heath local government district - continues to lure in admirers from afar.

Apart from its attractive setting, Brandon is also conveniently located. Suffolk, London, Northampton, Ipswich and the Norfolk Coast can all be reached within a matter of moments. Professionals looking for a countryside retreat will, therefore, find Brandon to be the perfect fit.

And what could be more cathartic than wandering through the many trails found at the magnificent High Lodge Forest Centre or Brandon Country Park? The two grounds provide the perfect avenue in which to explore the area.

Information about the local residents

According to the Census of 2011, over 9,100 individuals call Brandon home. This group is split into 4,069 households – of which 69% are comprised of families. This insinuates that Brandon is the perfect locale to begin or raise a family. The dwellings are more spacious, they offer acres of land and are more affordable.

47% of the population are in full-time employment. As mentioned previously, a majority of the town’s folk worked in the mining industry. Today, the population are still very hands on. Most tend to work in the manufacturing and construction sector. A large number of individuals also commute to the nearby cities or towns for work.

Nearby schools

There are three schools located in the immediate vicinity of Brandon. Two primary institutes: Forest Academy and Glade Primary School, and one secondary establishment, IES Breckland.

The two primary schools both earned a rating of ‘Good’ from Ofsted in 2014 and 2013 respectively. The two institutions further boast excellent pupil progression, effective teaching standards and a supportive learning environment.

IES Breckland, on the other hand, was not highly praised by Ofsted, however, don’t let this deter you. A number of schools can be found in the nearby settlements. Mildenhall College Academy, for one, is an excellent choice for your teenager.

Getting around

Due to Brandon’s convenient location, a majority of residents own a car and use this as the sole mode of transportation. As the parish is situated on the A1065 and near the A134 and A11, the road networks tend to be heavily congested.

A number of public transportation options exist to ease the congestion. Frequent buses ferry passengers to the neighbouring towns and trains transport users to major hubs within England. A number of National Express coaches also run through the picturesque town.

Local shops

Brandon is home to a quaint selection of independent stores such as a bakery, a butcher’s and a florist. Most are lined along the pretty High Street, a number of takeaways also have a presence here.

Every Thursday and Saturday, the town hosts an outdoor market – one which sells all manner of items and essential goods.

The one thing that Brandon does not boast is retail offerings. For this, you have to venture into the bigger towns and cities such as Norwich (55 minutes away by car), Suffolk (a 50-minute journey) or the Big Smoke (just under 2 hours away) so that you can shop until your heart’s content. On the way back home, you can do your weekly food shop at either Aldi or Tesco Express.
