Welcome to Assington, Suffolk. Situated approx. 5 miles from Sudbury and 10 miles from Colchester, with the main village just off the A134, Assington is close to the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a short walk from the Nature Reserves of Spouse’s Vale and Arger Fen. Assington Thicks, to the west, is an ancient woodland of approximately 52ha (128 acres), privately owned but with public access.
In the main village, along The Street are the pub, the Farm Shop and Tea Room (these last two being part of "The Barn at Assington" complex), with the Village Hall and Playing Field at the southern end (see separate entry). Mentioned in Domesday as having a population of 78, there are currently about 380 residents.
