Things to do in Worlingworth, Suffolk
Worlingworth is a quiet rural village situated approximately 6 miles north west of Framlingham, with its well preserved castle and 6 miles north east of Debenham, a 15th Century wool town.
At the centre of the village is The Swan, a thatched public house where a warm welcome is guaranteed and the local beer, Adnams, is served via a tap from the barrel. The pub has a large beer garden for summer use and there are occasional music evenings to enjoy, featuring local bands and musicians. When the weather is colder the traditional interior has a large wood burner which gives the pub a cosy warmth.
A community centre close to the pub offers further facilities and has a large playing field which hosts football and cricket games for the local teams.
The major employer in the village is L.E. Tuckwell Ltd, who as well as being a land owner is a major agricultural supplier in the area.
The village is surrounded by farmland which produces many crops including wheat, barley, sugar beet and oil seed rape. As the year passes the landscape changes from shades of brown to green, yellow and gold. Harvest time for the wheat and barley in the summer provides wonderful photo opportunities. The sight of the combine harvesters gathering the harvest on a sunny day is one such opportunity.
Wildlife is plentiful in the area and can be enjoyed on many of the walks in the area. Woodpeckers are often seen and heard in trees around the village. Deer and owls also add to the variety of wildlife.
