Sudbury Area Guide
Sudbury is an ancient market town set in the Stour Valley in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The town dates back to the time of the Saxons and has a long heritage in the weaving and silk industries. This work was particularly important to the area during the late middle ages when nearby market towns like Lavenham were booming due to their role in the wool trade. Part of the explanation for Sudbury’s historic wealth relates to its location – near to the coast for shipping wool exports via the River Stour, and near to London & Colchester for domestic transport. Sudbury is only fifteen miles from Colchester and has good road and rail links with the rest of the UK, especially London.
Sudbury has been used for television locations, most significantly for BBC's Lovejoy. It is surrounded by the attractive countryside so often painted by Constable and Gainsborough and by quintessentially English villages. It is an ideal base for people who enjoy walking or hiking. There are a wide variety of shops on offer in the town, and the area around North Street is particularly popular.
