Medieval stories

Lavenham was once one of the wealthiest places in the country. Its famous blue cloth was
exported across Europe and beyond.

The village today is famed for its wealth of surviving timber-framed buildings, which make
it one of the best-preserved medieval villages in England. One of the finest of these
buildings is our Guildhall of Corpus Christi.

Inside, you can follow the changing fortunes of Lavenhamʼs cloth industry, local families,
as well as its farming heritage and agricultural roots.

Explore the streets of this unique village, which have changed little in five
centuries. You can also browse in the Guildhall’s  gift shop and enjoy a homemade cake in
their newly refurbished tea-room.
