Shadingfield is a village and civil parish in the Waveney district, in the English county of Suffolk located approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) south of Beccles along the A145. The village is joined with Willingham St Mary and 1 12 miles (2.4 km) west of Sotterley. The mid-2005 population estimate for Shadingfield parish was 170,[1] increasing to 178 at the time of the 2011 Census.[2] The parish council operates to administer jointly the parishes of Shadingfield, Willingham, Sotterley and Ellough.[3]
