Visit Brandon and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Brandon, Suffolk. Brandon is situated in the North West corner of the county almost on the Norfolk border and is part of the area known as Breckland. It is in that tiny portion of Suffolk which lies to the West of the All. Flints have provided its main industry for centuries. It is on the Little Ouse near the new State Forest of Thetford Chase. St Peter's Church is some way from the town which grew up along the main road. The village displays the local building materials, flint of course, chalk, plaster and brick. The school in the Gothic style dates from 1878. The old stone five-arched bridge links Suffolk with Norfolk.
Extensive Roman remains have been found here at Fenhouse Farm. Brandon Hall is 18th century. Simon Eyre, the shoemaker who became Lord Mayor of London in Thomas Dekker's The Shoemaker's Holiday (1600), was based on the Simon Eyre, native of Brandon, who became Lord Mayor of London in 1445.
