Coltsfoot Green is a small hamlet within the village of Wickhambrook, Suffolk, England. It constitutes one of its eleven village greens and consists of a small green with a small tributary of the River Glem running through it. Until 2009 there was a small copse on the green which was removed due to the poor condition of the trees. Replanting was anticipated in 2010 but the Estates Committee of the Parish Council decided to leave the Green without further planting for the foreseeable future. A water well resided on the green until it was filled in at an unknown date although evidence of its existence was demonstrated when the copse was removed. On the Green is also a memorial bench which looks out over the Green towards Coltsfoot Close.

Roads[edit]

Off the green to the north is a byway, Coltsfoot Close is to the south and the road which abuts it in a westerly direction leads to Meeting Green and in the easterly direction to the Duddery and Fuller's Hill.
