Home

Shimpling is a quiet, pretty village of some 420 souls (in 2005) and is set in the Suffolk countryside surrounded by arable farmland and lies between Sudbury and Bury St Edmunds. Historically, the main living of its residents was from farming although other occupations included those of blacksmith, miller, carpenter, shopkeeper, beer seller, teacher and so on. Now there is no shop nor smithy, the school was closed along with the post office and police station. But we are left with the three staples of life in our thriving community, the pub, the church and the village hall.
