Our history is strongly linked with our surrounding villages and Stowmarket. Our boundaries have changed by political and ecclesiastical dictates. Our Uplands and the river valley were once known as Thornei. The River Gipping became our western boundary and in recent times more of her historic lands have become part of Stowmarket. We asked ourselves where to draw the line of our historical interest?
We are indebted to local residents, both past and present, for their contributions to our archives through which we have learnt much of our past from before Domesday to our recent past.
