Pinewood is a civil parish and electoral ward in the Babergh district of the English county of Suffolk. Whilst not part of the borough, it forms part of the town of Ipswich although part of the parish is separated from it by Belstead Brook, a tributary of the River Orwell. The parish was formed on 1 April 1994 from parts of Washbrook, Belstead and Wherstead.
Bobbitshole is a 1.8 hectares (4.4 acres) Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) designated for its geological importance. The site is to the east of the parish, located on a sewage works site to the south of Belstead Brook. It is a nationally important reference site for the study of the Pleistocene, providing a record of the buildup of sediment and organic material during the last inter-glacial period. The site was discovered during excavation of the sewage works site and was designated in 1987.
