WELCOME TO LEAVENHEATH

 

HISTORY

Leavenheath was established in 1952 as a civil parish, and is made up of three small hamlets that have in recent years expanded with the construction of new developments.  Currently there are 1167 parishioners on the electoral roll.

The village is situated to the north of the Essex/Suffolk border, midway between the market towns of Sudbury and Colchester. It is adjacent to the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is in easy reach of Constable Country.

 

EDUCATION 

Children in Leavenheath have the opportunity of attending Little Ladybirds (Mother & Toddler group) continuing into Ladybirds Pre-school held in the Village Hall.  State education is served by two primary schools; one in Nayland and one in Stoke by Nayland (both with excellent Ofsted reports)

The education system in Suffolk has reverted to two tiers.  So at eleven years old children then carry on to the secondary school, Thomas Gainsborough School at Great Cornard.  There are alternative private education establishments in surrounding villages. 

 

HEALTH

Two medical practices serve Leavenheath; Nayland Surgery and Boxford Surgery.  The nearest accident and emergency facility is at the Colchester General Hospital situated at Mile End, approximately six miles south of Leavenheath. 

 

TRANSPORT

There is a regular bus service throughout every week day, passing through the village connecting Colchester and Sudbury.  Colchester North Station is the nearest rail link for London (Liverpool Street).

Leavenheath Wildlife Corridor Under Threat.

Recently three planning applications have been submitted adjacent to the A134, close to the High Road
junction. This means wildlife that passes through Royston Wood will be forced onto the A134
stopping access to the Suffolk Wildlife Trust land at Arger Fen and Spouses Vale.
