Bredfield is a small but active village, situated off the A12 about two miles north of Woodbridge, comprising some 140 dwellings and about 350 people. In common with many other rural settlements, we have lost our Post Office and School in recent years, but we are served by a busy community shop, manned by volunteers, with a range of local products and a village hall with playing field, tennis courts and a bowls club.
The centre of the village is still dominated by St. Andrew's Church, dating from the 13th century. Sadly the Castle Inn is closed at present.
There are two working farms located in the parish and the premises adjacent to the Forge still provide some small local businesses with a home. The tourist industry is also established, with caravan and yurt and self-catering accommodation all being available.
The village has a good community spirit, which is evident in the variety of activities to be found, from art classes and a French conversation group to the bowls club, which all meet regularly. The Jubilee Meadow project, to establish an environmental area and community orchard has attracted much praise (and awards).
