Ixworth & Ixworth Thorpe | For the community

Large tree on Ixworth High StreetThe Ixworth village website has been designed to help any and all residents of Ixworth and surrounding villages to  learn more about what happens in Ixworth.

A village can often be remote from the communities and groups around it and we believe that the internet can draw together information on what’s on to bring that community together.

We want this to be a resource for the community from individuals who live or have lived within the community. For issues within the community to be aired and for local businesses to further advertise their services to the community. Too much of modern life revolves around shopping for services from large multi-national chains, and the great small business suppliers who rely on local trade seem to become more isolated.

The groups that exist for citizens of Ixworth and surrounding areas are rich in life and can add much to the lives of people. Please feel free to find us on facebook at www.facebook.com/ixworth, and enjoy your website.

If you would like to see any further information listed on this website please email contact@ixworthvillage.co.uk.

Ixworth in 1625

The earliest known map of Ixworth was created in 1625 to show the land holdings of the Lord of the Manor John Carill Esq. That map was then copied by hand in 1834. The 1834 version was deteriorating when, in the 1970s, a local photographer recorded it. That record, in the form of a pair […]
