In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.
A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 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 terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.
Chediston Hall was built by Wm. Plumber in an Elizabethan style. The village's name is said to derive from Cedd's Stone, a large chunk of sandstone which stood in lands owned by the one-time Rockstone Manor. A large Roman building at Hernehill was partly excavated in 1965. A tower mill on the road to Linstead was demolished in 1925.
The village was recorded in Domesday variously as "Cedestan", "Sedestana" and "Cidestanes". John Speed's 1610 map shows the village as "Cheſten".
