The village is situated approximately 2 miles off the A12 halfway between Woodbridge and Aldeburgh. The famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall is only one mile away. The village no longer has a shop or post office but these can be found either at Campsea-Ashe or Snape, there is a farm shop within 2 miles of the village.
The village school built in 1881 by John Sheppard, during the early part of the last century had an average attendance of 100 pupils but was closed in 1976. This is where George Ewert Evans lived when he wrote the famous book “Ask The Fellows Who Cut The Hay”, the old school is now a very distinctive Youth Hostel housing 48 beds. The hostel has been completely revamped recently and modernised with disabled access and accommodation.
