Travel to and from Ellingham
Ellingham lies along the A143 road which runs from Gt. Yarmouth in Norfolk to Haverhill in Suffolk. In March 2002, Ellingham and the nearby village of Broome were bypassed by this road which consequently, divided the larger side of Ellingham, now known as Ellingham 'East', with the smaller side, referred to as Ellingham 'West'.
