Introduction

Fornham St Martin once had a reputation for "pie-ladies" - women who walked to the Abbey in Bury St Edmunds to feed the monks - today it is dominated by modern housing. The village appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Fernham mertin".

A smock mill used to stand near the current Lark Valley Drive. It collapsed in 1927.
