Wrentham is a village of approximately 1000 persons nestled around a junction on the A12 London/Ipswich/Lowestoft/Gt. Yarmouth trunk road. The junction has roads to Southwold, Beccles and Covehithe. Wrentham is steeped in history stretching back to Saxon times and is mentioned in the Doomsday book. It is a mixture of old and new with some small new housing estates strategically placed so as not to detract from the overall impression of a very attractive village. Click here for more information. Wrentham has some very pleasant buildings and has won the ‘Best Kept Village’ competition several times in the past.  In 2004 Wrentham won the competition for the 10th time and a tree was planted to commemorate this.  In 2008 the Village won the Waveney District Area Section again and received a cheque for £200 from Waveney District Council which has been spent on providing a new Notice Board at the Village Hall, also a Cheque was presented for £250 by Beach Radio, Lowestoft as part of their ‘Help an East Coast Child’ campaign. This was spent on two five a side football goal posts. These have been erected on the football pitch in London Road for use by the younger generation of our Village.  

With a core of old Wrentham families plus many new residents it still has a real sense of community.  

Wrentham, Suffolk enjoys connections with  Wrentham Massachusetts.


The village is well sited for holiday makers wishing to visit the surrounding area, which includes Southwold (www.southwold.info): a quaint old Suffolk seaside resort untouched by time, Beccles (www.beccles.info) a pretty market town, which has excellent boating facilities on the River Waveney, Lowestoft: England’s most Easterly point, Covehithe and Oulton Broad, which is also good for boating. Oulton Broad is the most Southerly of the ‘Norfolk’ Broads, being in Suffolk! It connects to the other Broads and holiday cruisers can be seen here and at Beccles.  There is also power boat racing here on Thursday evenings in the summer. Covehithe is a hamlet 2 - 3 miles from Wrentham and boasts a magnificant church, a good proportion of which is a ruin.  


Wrentham has good sports and recreational facilities and a prize winning Brass Band.  (website: www.wrenthamband.org)


First Responders

First responders are members of the community who have been trained to attend emergencies (heart attacks etc.).

They are contacted by the emergency services and can usually get to an emergency before the paramedics. Because they are on the spot, they are able to start the crucial recovery process within a very short time.
