Suffolk is a county within East England. It is known as a non-metropolitan county. Suffolk has historic origin within a region called East Anglia. The county shares its borders with Cambridgeshire to the west, the North Sea to the east, Norfolk to the north and Essex to the south. Ipswich is Suffolk’s county town, other notable towns are Bury St Edmunds, Lowestoft and one of Europe’s largest container ports, Felixstowe.
Suffolk is made up of rural lands, most of which are flat and low-lying, containing very few hills. With the wetlands of the Broads, in the North, the land is largely arable. The county contains an area of outstanding beauty: The Suffolk Coast and Heaths.
Suffolk’s total area is just under 3800 km squared. (1400 miles squared) It holds a population of just over 730 thousand. The name “Suffolk” derives from the time which a colony known as “The Angles” (Of which East Anglia and even England itself are named after) had settled in the area. They became “South Folk” which turned into Suffolk, which also applies to Norfolk, which originated from the term “North Folk”.
West Suffolk is well known for archaeological finds, ranging from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. All artefacts found are now in the hands of the St Edmundsbury Heritage service, which lies just outside of Bury St Edmunds.
