Hadleigh can be found on the Essex/Suffolk border just ten miles from Ipswich, fifteen miles from Colchester and approximately seventy miles from London. The centre of the district is characterised by rural villages and historic market towns, such as Lavenham, Stoke By Nayland and Kersey, Hadleigh is maybe one of East Anglia's best kept secrets. With its excellent nearby transport links to the A12 and A14, together with access to main line rail stations in Ipswich, Manningtree and Colchester. Hadleigh has become a desirable residential location for both local families and London commuters. Hadleigh proudly boasts over two hundred and fifty listed buildings. The character of the town is maintained by a wealth of independent shops lining the main High Street. There is a medium sized supermarket offering one-stop-shop convenience as well as a local farm shop stocking Suffolk produce. Most villages in this area are fortunate to have junior schools which are very highly regarded. The senior school of Hadleigh offers places to seven hundred and fifty pupils aged eleven to sixteen and is specialist science school with a strong presence in the Suffolk school league tables.
