Welcome to the Village of Hoxne

Please browse around the site and we hope you can find everything you need.
Hoxne is a beautiful old Suffolk village with a unique and truly ancient history. The first Hoxnians settled here over 320,000 years ago alongside a lake and, a major geological period, the Hoxnian Interglacial (375,000 to 425,000 years ago), was named after Hoxne. John Frere discovered the first human tools at the site which had become the Hoxne brick pit; the Hoxne Hoard is one of the biggest discoveries of Roman treasure in the UK much of which is on display at The British Museum. It is thought the martyrdom of King (later Saint) Edmund took place at Hoxne in 869 AD, and until the 9th century, the ancient Bishop's seat of East Anglia was at Hoxne before being moved to Norfolk. There are many interesting local walks and places to see as well as much interesting architecture. The 13th century church of St Peter and St Paul which stands at the top of a hill overlooking the village and The Swan Inn, a magnificent 15th century pub, are both worthy of a visit.
