Welcome to Sproughton, pronounced Spror-ton according to wikipedia, a village situated three miles west of Ipswich in the county of Suffolk.
The mediaeval heart of the village includes a listed Church, a restored Water Mill, now privately owned, and the Tithe Barn. On the crossroad formed by Lower Street and Burstall Lane is the Wild Man pub, with records showing a landlord in situ as far back as 1844.
The Community Shop, accessed via the Tithe Barn courtyard is a tardis of wonderful local produce and grocery essentials. It was opened in 2010 and is managed by an enthusiastic group of volunteers, all with strong links to the village.
There's a primary school, sports facilities, countryside walks on the door-step and several active social and community groups covering a multitude of interests.
Regular events involving local residents, both the organising of and participating in, include the annual Sproughton Beer Festival at the Tithe Barn, the Village Fete and Bonfire Night festivities.
