Battisford is a village and civil parish in the Mid Suffolk district of Suffolk, England. The village is about 4 miles (6 km) south of Stowmarket, and is directly alongside Wattisham Airfield. | The village contains a Parish Church, a Free Church, a Community Centre - which holds the pre-school playgroup - and a village green, containing a play area. The main road which runs through Battisford is Straight Road, being very straight and over a mile long. The village pub, The Punch Bowl, is a registered Community Interest Company (CIC), and is the very first of its kind in Suffolk.

In 1983, for one day only, Battisford declared its independence from the United Kingdom.
