Charsfield is a small Suffolk village of 355 residents,(2011)[1] 3 miles (4.8 km) from Wickham Market, 7 miles (11 km) from Woodbridge and 12 miles (19 km) from Ipswich and is located near the villages of Debach and Dallinghoo. A Civil Parish in East Anglia, Charsfield was famously used as one of the key locations in the 1974 film Akenfield, based loosely upon the book Akenfield: Portrait of an English Village by the historian Ronald Blythe (1969). Charsfield hosted the first Greenbelt festival - an annual festival of arts, faith and justice - on a pig farm just outside the village over the August 1974 bank holiday weekend. Famous Charsfield residents include Charles Webb, a respected Victorian architect and Peggy Cole, a frequent speaker on BBC's Radio Suffolk.
