The church of St. Peter is an ancient structure, in the Perpendicular style: it has a tower with 6 bells, and surmounted by a small spire: it was enlarged in 1837, at a cost of 1,200. The living is a vicarage, annual value 230, in the gift of, and held by, the Rev. Robert Firmin, M.A. There is a Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist chapel, a National school and a Mechanics' Institute. The town is on the old road from Ipswich to Lowestoft and Yarmouth, consisting of one well built street of modern houses: it is situated in a remarkably pleasant neighbourhood, surrounded by a beautiful country, interspersed with many seats of the gentry, and is lighted with gas. The scenery is wooded, picturesque, and magnificent. Cockfield Hall, the seat of Sir John R. Blois, Bart, D.L., is a mansion in the Tudor style, in a well-wooded park, through which flows the small river Yox or Minsmere. Grove House and the Rookery are other handsome seats here. Petty sessions are held every other Wednesday at the Three Tuns inn. Here are the headquarters of the East Suffolk Constabulary. The population in 1861 was 1,111, and the area is 2,724 acres.
