Beyton Parish

Beyton is a small, rural Suffolk village lying 5 miles east of the historic town of Bury St Edmunds, and 8 miles west of Stowmarket. It is situated just to the south of the A14 and 2 miles to the south of the Ipswich to Cambridge railway line with a station at Thurston.  The current electorate is just over 550. The atmosphere of the village is distinctly rural (an attribute the village protects) and closely connected to the surrounding arable farmland. 

The Village Green is central to the northern side of the village, a triangular stretch of grass, with a stream bounded by willow, chestnut and beech trees. Several of the surrounding dwellings are listed buildings – including the telephone box!   There is a children’s play area on the green, with a football pitch, and seating surrounds the restored village pump. The Old Forge and former Village School, now both private dwellings, are situated here. Adjacent to the Green is the village pond, an important feature of the village and home to the famous Beyton Geese.

There is an active Village Association, organizing social events, and an Environmental Group (BEG) which is affiliated to the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers.

There are two regular publications delivered to homes in Beyton – The Beyton News is bi-monthly and gives information on events in the village. The Parish Magazine is published 10 months per year, giving details of church services and news in the parish, as well as details of events in the wider area.
