The village houses an airbase. Formerly known as RAF Wattisham, it was one of the front-line airbases in the Cold War. The RAF moved out in March 1993 and it is now the largest Army Air Corps airfield in the United Kingdom. The airbase is now named Wattisham Airfield.
The parish church of St Nicholas, was declared redundant by Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich in the 1970s but was taken over by a charitable trust, who use it for concerts and exhibitions, with profits reinvested into caring for the building. Diocesan architect Henry Munro Cautley (1875-1959), in his 1937 Suffolk Churches and their Treasures, found little to interest him except an armorial shield.
