In 1870, a survey was made of the population and homes of
the whole of Chelsworth. As part of this process, photographs were taken of
every house and cottage in the village, and every resident was listed. The
results were recorded in a
pre-printed and bound ledger and are now on a website
which gives a wonderful glimpse of life then.
There is also a
about the railway route proposed by the
Eastern Counties Railway Company in 1843 thatwould
have taken a track right through the heart of Chelsworth, cutting it in half.
It was the first village to have a
Garden Open Day
