Timworth is a village and civil parish 65 miles (104km) north east of London and 26 miles (42 km) east of Cambridge in the St Edmundsbury district of Suffolk, eastern England. Located around two miles north of Bury St Edmunds, its 2005 population was 50.[1] At the 2011 Census the appropriate Postal Code (IP31 1HS) showed the population as being included in Ampton.

The village name is Old English for ‘Enclosure of a man called *Tima’ and was mentioned in the Doomesday Book as Timeworda.[2]

In the early industrial revolution the village was the setting for the great Gleaning Case.
