About Aspall

No pubs listed here but the parish is probably best known for the Aspall Cider company, a long-standing local business (dated back to at least 1728) currently run by Charles Henry Chevallier and his long established local farming family. One of his forebears (also of the same name) is listed as the vicar (in 1865). Then Aspall Hall (built late 16th-early 17th century) was being used as a "respectable private lunatic asylum" with Doctor Chevallier's widow and Thomas Radford (surgeon) in charge.

Aspall Cider claims to be the 10th-oldest privately-owned business in the country, dating from 1728.

Aspall was recorded in Domesday variously as "Espala" and "Aspella" (with variations on both spellings).

Aspall & Thorndon Station, on the Mid-Suffolk Line, was just east of the B1077 about half-way between Aspall Green and Rishangles. It opened in September 1908 and closed in July 1952.
