LOCATION This part of Suffolk is a haven for artists, writers and musicians. Blaxhall is a pretty rural village with a well documented social history which has been recorded in recent years by its own residents and published in an excellent book which features a number of photographs from the early 20th century. The village's rural history was celebrated by the writer and village resident George Ewart Evans who published a number of books in the 1960s and 1970s including: The Horse in the Furrow, The Farm and the Village and Ask the Fellows who cut the Hay. His interviews with local villagers in and around Blaxhall have provided us with an important historical record of life in rural Suffolk at the time of the Great War and during the last days of working horses on the land. Blaxhall has an excellent pub and is ideally located for access to Orford, Woodbridge, Aldeburgh and the neighbouring village of Snape - Snape Maltings is home to the Aldeburgh Festival. There are wonderful walks across Blaxhall Common and through Tunstall Forest with cycle routes through the village and on to Iken and Orford. The nearest railway station is just two villages away at Campsea Ashe where there is a connecting service to London, Cambridge and Norwich via Ipswich.
