About Earl Stonham
Earl Stonham is a scattered settlement based around three ancient greens. The village is also sometimes known as Stonham Earl. It appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Erleſtonham". The church has some medieval wall paintings and a unique hourglass.
The Shepherd & Dog is located in a small hamlet called Forward Green, as was the Cricketers.
Ichiban, based at Church Farm, is the largest sushi producer in Europe.
A Romano-British settlement has been unearthed in fields between Forward Green and Stonham Parva.
Derelict 19th century malthouses near the former Stonham Parva Brewer's Arms show that malting must have been a sizeable business here in the past.
