Whether you're new to the village or have been here for a while, hopefully you'll find some, or all, of this useful on www.marlesford.com.
Virtually all of the village, population 223 (2001 census), and the surrounding water meadows are in a Conservation Area, and a number of buildings are listed by English Heritage, including the Church of St Andrew. Much of the Parish lies within the Alde River Valley Special Landscape Area.
There are plenty of terrific footpaths, many of which cross the Marlesford Estate. The Estate encourages their use, but asks that we observe the 'Country Code' paying particular attention to keeping dogs under control, closing all gates and not dropping any litter. In addition the Reservoir is strictly out of bounds.
Sheet 221 of the Ordnance Survey Explorer Map published in 1999 covers the village, and will provide hours of excellent walks.
