About Higham (Babergh)

Small pretty settlement close to confluence of river Brett with river Stour (which also forms the county boundary with Essex). Rowley Grove, a local nature reserve is an Ancient Woodland.

Tea Caddy Cottage (see gallery) is an attractive and unusual building on Hadleigh Road. It was built in the early 19th century by the Wedgewood family (probably not the pottery people) as a home for their staff gardener.

Today the village is perhaps best known for Point-To-Point horse races which are organised by various local harrier clubs and usually held between January and April each year.
