This pretty little village of some sixty houses sits in the beautiful Brett valley in South Suffolk, stretching along a mile or so of winding village road.

The village is very old. Documents in the British Museum record King Edgar giving Chelsworth to Queen Aethelflaed in 962, and perhaps its greatest blessing is that, architecturally at least, time seems to have passed it by. Indeed photographs from the 1860s show the many thatched and daub-and-wattle houses, its lovely bridge, and its well-known pub looking almost exactly as they do today. Chelsworth
