THE LOCATION
Monks Eleigh is a very pretty and well regarded village in the Brett Valley, surrounded by some of the nicest countryside in Suffolk. It contains a wealth of period houses and cottages, a local village shop, public house and parish church. The many villages all around include medieval Lavenham, which offers a surprisingly good range of local shops, public houses and restaurants. The nearby market towns of Sudbury and Hadleigh each provide further facilities, together with road connections to the surrounding area. Sudbury and Stowmarket stations provide trains through to London's Liverpool Street. Back Lane is a tiny lane running parallel to the main street but on the other side of meadows and a stream, away from through traffic. It contains a modest number of houses and cottages tucked in the trees and is a very pleasant setting.
