The English village of Lavenham is located within the civil parish of Lavenham in Suffolk. The village of Lavenham is probably best known for its church, which dates back to the fifteenth century, the half timber cottages that date back to the medieval times and also the circular walk. The village of Lavenham was amongst the twenty wealthiest settlements in England during the medieval times. Nowadays the village is very popular with people taking a day trip both from other parts of Britain and from across the other countries such as America.
The village of Lavenham is located about five miles to the north east of the English town that is known as Sudbury. The village is located in a hilly area and the village is located on the ridge of the western banks of the River Brett. Two small separate small valleys intersect this ridge, which actually breaks the valley into three parts. The church is located at the top of the southern section, the market place is in the centre and the remains of the old windmill are in the northern section.
The village of Lavenham is located on the A1141, which is the main road between Bury St. Edmunds and Hadleigh. The heavy goods vehicles, which go through the village, cause a lot of problems on the narrow streets that make up the village.
There was once a railway station within the village, which was part of the main St. Edmunds railway line but the railway station closed in 1961 after almost ninety-seven years.
