Culpho (pronounced Cul-fo) is a hamlet of about 40 people standing just outside Grundisburgh, Suffolk, about four miles west of Woodbridge. Its nearest villages are Great Bealings and Playford. It is big enough to have its own church, St Botolph's, which is part of a shared benefice with Great Bealings, Little Bealings and Playford.
The place-name 'Culpho' is first attested in the Domesday Book of 1086, where it appears as Culfole. The name is spelt Colfho in 1168, Culfho in 1178, and Colvesho in 1250. The name probably means 'Cuthwulf's hoh or spur of land'.
Culpho is one of the Thankful Villages - those very rare places that suffered no fatalities in the Great War of 1914 to 1918.
