Owner description: Lovely timbered buildings, an ancient guildhall and graceful churches help to make Lavenham one of the most attractive and charming villages in Suffolk, England.

Walking the streets, easy to do as it is a tiny place, is an interesting look back to the wealth of the wool trade. Also, because of settling, sagging and bowing, many of the buildings are at odd angles now which makes them a bit quirky. The museum in the guildhall is certainly worth the time as it explains the wool industry and how Lavenham once thrived. Also, after 6 p.m., the place is very quiet and peaceful.

Lavenham is a small town near Bury St. Edmunds in East Anglia. It is a great location for walking in the town, visiting art displays, relaxing, peaceful remembering a good life and its closeness to other towns in historical East Anglica.

It has a history that puts it close to the formation of America in the 18th Century. Many of the Englishmen came to America from East Anglica, at that time because they needed a location the would give them the freedom of their religion and style of living, which was somewhat different from what was, at that time, acceptable in England.

Today, there is the history of the 2nd World War. This saw the development of American operations near the east coast of England, for the Air Force and other military presence.

This is an interesting place to relax and have a litttle fun!
