The local area guide to living in Framlingham

One of the last ‘true’ market towns in the United Kingdom, Framlingham can be found on the Suffolk Coast. Originally an Anglo-Saxon village, it is mentioned in the Domesday Book, and first gained a market charter in the 1200s. The area is filled with historical landmarks, with 71 properties and areas listed for conservation.

Of particular note is the Framlingham Castle, built in the 1100s, which is a rare example of a castle built without a keep. It has an interesting history, having been a fortress, prison, poorhouse and an important defensive position during World War II. Today, aside from its category one protected building status, it operates as both a museum and a tourist attraction.

The nearby Framlingham Mere is a popular walking route and one enjoyed by many dog walkers and families who want a day out. Exceptional wildlife and several popular hiking paths can be found surrounding it and the area at large. The Church of Saint Michael the Archangel, beyond being protected and a 12th century church, hosts a rarity in its 1708 Thamar Organ. One of the few large-scale organs to survive the English civil war, it remains in use today, being utilised by visiting organists and for the Sunday sermon.

Information about the local residents

The residents on a whole are slightly older than the UK at large. Many residents were born and raised in the village, and whilst younger residents often leave for larger cities, such as nearby Ipswich, they find themselves returning as they get older. A business park and technical centre in the town has also helped boost the business appeal of Framlingham, creating a more modern and business-centric town.

Nearby schools

The Sir Robert Hitcham's CEVA Primary School can be found within Framlingham, and includes a nursery on the campus. Another option is the nearby Framlingham College, which is an independent co-educational boarding school. It was established in 1864, in the honour of the late Prince Albert, and today exists in its original headquarters; a mock gothic grade II listed building.

The nearby Brandeston Hall and nursery serves as a prep school for the college and together they accommodate pupils of ages 2 and a half, up until 18 years old. Two other primary schools, the Easton Community Primary School, and the Earl Soham Community Primary School can be found in the nearby towns, less than twenty minutes away from Framlingham.

Getting around

The town sits at the junction of three B-roads: B116, B119 and B1120. These roads connect to larger networks nearby, such as the A12 and A14, which lead onto the cities in the region, such as Ipswich. International travel isn’t too difficult, with the closest airport an hour away, and taxi services available within the town.

The closest train stations can be found in Wickham Market and Saxmundham, both on the East Suffolk Line, which goes from Ipswich to Lowestoft. Bus services are also available around the region. Despite this, the majority of residents tend to rely primarily on their car to get them from A to B.

Local shops

As a market town, one that still functions with a traditional market, the most prevalent form of shopping is, of course, at the weekly market. The market, which is held on Tuesday’s and Saturday’s, is quite an expansive one for such a small town. Dozens of stalls can be found, selling wares such as; fish, meat, bread, wines, craft beers, fruit, vegetables, art, and much more.

The basic amenities are also available and open most of the week, with a post office, several chemists, petrol stations, a doctor’s surgery and supermarkets all available in the town. More brand name shopping can be found in Ipswich, which, in fact, prides itself on its name brands. Several shopping centres and a trendy High Street can also be found within the city, which is a mere 40-minute drive away.
