Welcome to the Hemingstone village website. You will find here details of our Parish Council meetings and decisions, and also information about village events. On the Village Footpath Map tab, you'll find a draft of our new local map, still in development.
A little bit of history:
According to the 13th century Liber Feodorum (Book of Fees), the fee tail granted to Roland the Farter for the manor was conditioned on the performance of "unum saltum et siffletum et unum bumbulum" (one jump, one whistle, and one fart) at the king's court every Christmas.
In 1597 the entire parish was cited before a church court for laxity. This may have been the influence of the incumbent manorial lord, Ralph Cantrell, a recusant Catholic.
The Suffolk folk singer Percy Webb was born in Hemingstone in 1897.
The parish church is dedicated to St. Gregory and is Grade I listed.
