THE BIG PIC­TURE

EADT Suffolk - - SUFFOLK & PROUD - Pho­to­graph by Barry Pullen

Pol­stead, so named be­cause it is ‘the place of ponds’, which lie at the bot­tom of a steep hill lead­ing up to the vil­lage green. Pol­stead is known for its cher­ries, lovely St Mary’s church, and the 19th cen­tury mur­der, in the Red Barn, of lo­cal lass Maria Marten at the hands of Wil­liam Corder, lo­cal squire. It is a beau­ti­ful vil­lage with ex­cel­lent walks, re­warded by a visit to the pub, The Cock.
