Otley is a village located in the county of Suffolk, England, about eight miles north of Ipswich. The village is home to Otley Hall, a 16th-century, Grade I listed[2] house which was historically the seat of the family of Bartholomew Gosnold, and Easton & Otley College, offering vocationally focused courses in a number of areas. It is the birthplace of Roger Osborne who scored the only goal of the game in the 1978 FA Cup Final for Ipswich Town against Arsenal. Otley was also for many years, the home of the late Percy Edwards [3] famous[4] for impressions of birds and other animal noises.


An electoral ward in the same name exists. This ward stretches south to Hasketon with a total population taken at the 2011 Census of 2,272.[5]
