Long Melford






ong Melford (or Melford, as it is known locally) is a large village on Suffolk's border with Essex, which is marked by the River Stour. Its name is derived from the nature of the village's layout (originally concentrated along a 3 mile stretch of a single road) and the Mill ford crossing the Chad Brook (a tributary of the River Stour). Long Melford is notable for its large collection of antiques shops and dealers. (Wikipedia - Full Article)

Long Melford is about 8 miles from Chelsworth. It has a lot to offer with a very grand and fascinating church, an elegant (and long) main street with its mixture of timber-framed buildings, 'Georgianised' frontages and Victorian buildings, more antique shops than you can shake a stick at, the grandeur of Melford Hall and Kentwell Hall. It has a range of restaurants and other shops.
