Herringswell is a village and civil parish in the Forest Heath district of Suffolk in eastern England. In 2005 it had a population of 190.[1]

This memorial, quoted as a "lush young maiden" by Sam Mortlock in his 'Popular Guide to Suffolk Churches', is on the tomb of Herbert Davies, Lord of the Manor of Herringswell, who died in 1899.

It is 6 miles (9.7 km) from Newmarket.[2]

Education[edit]

The Shi-Tennoji School in UK (英国四天王寺学園, Eikoku Shitennōji Gakuen), a Japanese Buddhist boarding school in Herringswell , was in operation beginning in 1985[2] and ending on 17 July 2000.[3] The former campus includes the Herringswell Manor, built in 1901. The school closed due to declining student figures.[4] The mock-Tudor Manor House has now been converted into apartments.
