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 site 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
