In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

However, a number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Several Roman remains have been made around Stanway green. The font cover is said to be from Bury abbey. Also housed in the church is a fire-engine from 1760 (last used on 5 Nov 1927) and a 15 foot long spit which was used to roast a 50 stone ox during George III's golden jubilee celebrations. The church is also notable for the great span of the double hammer-beam roof.

Mill Road marks the site of two windmils; the New Mill, a post mill moved here from Hasketon circa 1850. It was demolished about 1950. The Old Mill dated from 1730. It was redundant by 1908 and demolished in 1942.

Worlingworth Station stood at the junction of Water Lane and Fingal Street; it was on the Mid-Suffolk line (Middy) which ran from Haughley to Laxfield.

The village was recorded in Domesday as "Wyrlingwortha".

The Listed Buildings Register claims that School House (in Shop Street) was "at one time a shop and The Crown public house"…
