Roper World

The Roper family lived in Hoxne for at least ten generations, from about 1500 to about 1750. David Roper (a Professor of Physics in Virginia, USA) has produced a fascinating genealogy web site which traces many English and United States Roper males, through Y-chromosome testing, all the way back to Hoxne in 1475! Within the site there are many Hoxne related links. David hopes to have a "clan" Roper reunion in Hoxne, once he has tracked down enough English Ropers. If you know of anyone with a Roper surname, please let the hoxneman know.

Wingfield Barns

Wingfield Barns became the home of Wingfield Arts and Music in 2000 housed in a £1.4m conversion of farm buildings next to Wingfield College. The inspiration for the project was Ian Chance, the founder of WAM. The buildings are a legacy of his vision to have galleries, workshops and artist resident accomodation in the beautiful and quiet Suffolk countryside. The site is centred on a Grade II listed timber framed barn built in 1537. The sympathetically restored buildings sit well away from the road in an naturally sloping site with sweeping views to the South across a traditionally farmed landscape.
