About Akenham

A dry parish. A small hamlet on a tributary of the River Gipping. Akenham is recorded in Domesday as "Acreham"; perhaps it was very small?

We have searched records dating back to before 1840 without finding reference to a single public house in this village; it seems likely there has never been one. Please let us know if you have any information to contradict this.

Some time before 1911, a pair of 6th century cruciform brooches were found at Akenham Hall. It's suggested they may be evidence of an ancient burial site.
