The Village of Hacheston
The Village of Hacheston (population 370) is in a valley and situated on the B1116 between the A12 and Framlingham but this road runs all the way to Harleston on the Norfolk border. As the B1116 passes through Hacheston it is called ‘The Street', the name, like other villages, was given by the Romans as Hacheston was a fairly large Roman market town. Later Its authenticity was established as it is recorded in the Domesday book of 1086. It has been a farming community for centuries and is the grain basin of England. Running parallel with the village is the river Ore which has its source in Framlingham Mere. Meandering through the countryside, it eventually flows into the Alde and then into the North Sea. Once navigable, it used to transport goods by barge.
