THE LOCATION

Sudbury is an historic town containing a wealth of period houses and cottages at its centre. The birthplace of Thomas Gainsborough, the town is steeped in history. The town provides an excellent range of shops, schools and recreational facilities including clubs for rugby, football, cricket, tennis, bowls and rowing. There is a small quayside theatre and modern swimming pool/leisure complex. The town's station provides shuttle trains through to the main London and Colchester line with fast services on to Liverpool Street

Weavers Court is tucked away right in the heart of the town centre in between Burkitts Lane and Weavers Lane, the latter containing the entrance to Gainsborough's House and the site of the wonderful new Gainsborough Heritage Centre, shortly to start construction.
