  Photograph of High Street, Hadleigh, Suffolk, England   Hadleigh is a sleepy market town, at least on the weekday that we were there, but that's the way we like them! It may well be different on a Saturday.

Hadleigh High Street looking north-west. The long High Street contains examples of almost every style of Suffolk domestic buildings. Medieval, Tudor, Georgian - you name it they've got it!

Plenty of ancient buildings to interest the visitor.

  View of Hadleigh from Constitution Hill showing the spire of St. Mary's Church, Hadleigh, Suffolk, England   View of Hadleigh from Constitution Hill with the spire of St. Mary's Church standing up above the trees.

This picture was taken on a walk to Kersey and, as you can see, the countryside around Hadleigh is very attractive.

Hadleigh is only two miles from the picturesque medieval village of Kersey. A 'must see' if you are ever in Suffolk.

  Scene showing the 15th Century St. Mary's Church and the Deanery Tower, Hadleigh, Suffolk, England   St. Mary's Church and the Deanery Tower.

The tower, built in 1495, is all that remains of the original Deanery.

The church was built in the 14th century and has a medieval wood and lead spire. Just above the clock the exterior bell, made in the late 11th century, doubles as a clock bell and sanctus bell.

The Guildhall is to the left, on the other side of the church yard, and Hadleigh hall is just round the church to the right (see the link immediately below).
