Copdock is a small village settlement in county of Suffolk, south-eastern England.


Copdock is 4.8 kilometres (3 mi) south-west of Ipswich. It is located on the former A12 road (now designated as the C475), which was blocked off at Whights Corner after the construction of the Copdock Interchange and the A14 road Ipswich bypass.


The local authority for the area is Babergh District Council. The village has joined up with the neighbouring village of Washbrook to form the Copdock & Washbrook Parish Council where the population is included.


It has a local primary school called Copdock Primary School [1], and the local church is called St. Peter's Copdock and is a Church of England.

The local village hall, located on the old A12, was built in 1991, and is situated within the grounds of the local playing fields. Various sports clubs use the playing fields; and they are home to a thriving cricket team, Copdock & Old Ipswichian CC. The Best Western Ipswich Hotel [2] is located opposite the village hall.
