Stonham Aspal is a village and civil parish within the Mid Suffolk District of the ceremonial county of Suffolk, in the East Anglia region of England. The village is located approximately five miles east of the nearest town, Stowmarket.
The village has a long history and many of the houses still present today date back to the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries. The first written reference to the settlement comes from even earlier still, in the shape of an entry in the Domesday Book of 1086. At this time, the village was named as Estuna and the entry read that it was ‘made up of 2 villagers, 4 small holders and 11 free men’ and had ‘a meadow of 7 acres, woodland of 80 pigs, 1 church and 0.11 church lands.’ Hard to imagine a woodland of 80 pigs nowadays!
In spite of its long history, the modern village of Stonham Aspal is still very much susceptible to the same modern issues of other settlements. These include compensation claims and the role of a personal injury lawyer in Stonham Aspal.
