Lower Layham


Important Covid information

If all goes according to plan, the first tranche of pubs (those that are able to serve drinkers outdoors) may be able to reopen on April 12th. Though of course, in a situation like this, nothing is guaranteed. The rest of our pubs may be permitted to reopen from May 17th.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Those known to be planning to reopen as soon as permitted are listed on this page.


Please tell us if you know of any pubs here ready to reopen when outdoors service is permitted.

The settlement is approached from Hadleigh via a minor road. No direct vehicular access is possible from the B1070 at Upper Layham. A watermill dating from 1905 can be found on the course of the river Brett. The 16th century Overbury Hall features in a Constable painting.

The two Layhams were recorded in Domesday variously as "Latham", "Lafham" and "Leiham" and historically may often just be refered to collectively as "Layham".
