Culpho (pronounced Cul-fo) is a hamlet of about 40 people standing just outside Grundisburgh, Suffolk, about four miles west of Woodbridge. The nearest villages are Great Bealings and Playford. The population is included in the civil parish of Westerfield.
The place-name 'Culpho' is first attested in the Domesday Book of 1086, where it appears as Culfole. The name is spelt Colfho in 1168, Culfho in 1178, and Colvesho in 1250. The name probably means 'Cuthwulf's hoh or spur of land'.
Culpho is one of the Thankful Villages - those very rare places that suffered no fatalities in the Great War of 1914 to 1918.
