Huntingfield was recorded in Domesday as "Huntingafelda" and appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Huntigfeld".

Heveningham Hall, a fine late 18th century house, can be seen from the road between Huntingfield and Walpole. Its exterior was designed by Sir Robert Taylor (in 1778), the interior by James Wyatt and the grounds were landscaped by Capability Brown. The future of the hall is now more assured (with a programme of restoration) after years of uncertainty. Elizabeth I once stood under the "Queen's Oak" whilst shooting deer here.

The Huntingfield Hare is the village newsletter, distributed throughout the village and also available on the village website.

The ruins of an old post mill remain on the Cratfield Road. It was moved to this location in about 1840, worked until 1927 and was knocked down the following year.
