Moulton is a Forest Heath, Suffolk, England village which pre-dates the 1086 Domesday book and, in 2005, had a population of 1090.[1]

Moulton Packhorse Bridge

The village is older than the now larger town of Newmarket and is famous[citation needed] for its 15th-century packhorse bridge spanning the River Kennett. The bridge is a grade II* listed structure [2]

Moulton also has a fine church, St. Peter's, with an early 14th-century tower topped by a gilded weather vane in the shape of a large pike by blacksmith Charles Poulter.[3] Restored in 1851, it is a grade I listed building.[4]
