As mentioned before we have been staying at a camp site to the rear of The Red Lion in Needham.

It has 12 pitches, ours had electric hook up and it’s own water and drainage, there is a small but very well maintained toilet block with a great wet room shower. The pub is obviously well supported by regulars and is mainly used by people taking meals, as such it only opens for approx 4 hours a day so the clientele have very little impact on campers. There is a self service area to buy eggs.

As we drove around Suffolk lots of houses had tables or small display areas outside selling eggs/ vegetables/ plants/ jams etc in Needham there were several, Michelle bought a plant from one and I bought jam from another.

Needham stretches for about a kilometre on either side of a quiet country road with a mixture of old and modern houses, there are no shops but there is a village hall, church and a lovely new play area for children large and small.

Village Hall
Many of the churches we saw on our travels around had unusual towers , this one in Needham went from round to octagonal.

We had a great time in Suffolk, everything was new to us and we weren’t disappointed, parking Homer can be difficult but that’s the case virtually everywhere you go in the UK.
