Galleries: Boxford, Suffolk

Boxford probably takes its name from the River Box, which it straddles. At the time of the 1086 Domesday survey conducted for King William the Conqueror Boxford had a population of 18. Its importance grew during the Middle Ages when it was involved in the wool trade. The church of St Edmund has a painting of its namesake saint dating from the end of the 14th century or the start of the 15th. St Edmund was a king of East Anglia, who is supposed to have been martyred by Danish invaders, who shot him with arrows for refusing to renounce Christianity and share his throne with them.
