Buildings Booklet

 

Campsea Ashe village is a relatively small village, but it has a fascinating selection of buildings ranging from the very old to modern homes. The oldest buildings, such as the Church, date back to the 13th century, other buildings are Listed by Historic England.

 The Campsea Ashe Heritage Group is producing a booklet that is the result of research into the history of many of the houses in the village. Where possible the current owners of the properties have been involved in the research and their contribution is much appreciated. We hope all details are accurate, but we welcome any corrections to the text if necessary.

 The booklet gives but a flavour of the many buildings in the village. There are many more but space has not allowed us to include them. However, the history of many more buildings can be found on this website and will be added to in the fullness of time. In addition, hard copies of the history of the buildings are kept in the Church and these can be freely viewed at any time when the Church always opened again.

We hope you enjoy learning something of the history of our buildings and we are grateful to the Parish Council for providing funds for publication of this booklet. Once the lockdown is over a final version of the booklet will be published and circulated across the village, but in the meantime this pre-publication edition is available by clicking on the icon below.
