HACHESTON NEIGHBOUR NEXTDOOR

At the Council meeting on 13 March the concerns of a number of residents regarding the recent distribution of a flyer inviting residents to join a Hacheston Neighbour Network were raised. This initiative is being promoted by Mrs Lee-Foster of Fieldgate, Hacheston and is independent of the Parish Council. Mrs Lee-Foster has advised that this is a private network, that can be limited to residents of Hacheston which she has found very useful in the recent past.

THE VILLAGE

The Village (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.
