    Elmswell is a pleasant village situated between Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich, just off the A14 with stores for daily shopping such as an East of England Co-op Foodstore, a post office, pharmacy, butchers, and a Mace store for newspapers or a pint of milk and much else besides. With a library, community centre and services such as hairdressers and a veterinary surgery, Elmswell has a strong sense of community.

    For larger shopping expeditions or entertainment, the historical town of Bury St Edmunds with its broad range of many excellent cultural, entertainment, leisure and shopping opportunities excels. The busy Wednesday and Saturday market in the centre of town is renowned for its fresh fruit and local produce, while the surrounding shops vary in size and independence bringing a stimulating sense of community to the area.


    A variety of leisure and entertainment is also available with parks, restaurants, pubs and cafes to suit all tastes. Local theatre, a multiplex cinema and a lively community backdrop make the town a perfect place for families, while the annual Bury Festival offers a fortnight of music and plays, comedy, dance and concerts. Lovers of the countryside and an active lifestyle will appreciate the proximity of Kingsbrook Place to the great outdoors. With miles of unspoilt countryside on your doorstep, including country parks, there are plenty of opportunities for cycling, fishing, horse riding and running. 


    Elmswell caters for Primary schooling with the Elmswell Community Primary School, while Bury St Edmunds has further choice from nursery and kindergarten to co-educational comprehensives such as Bury’s Sybil Andrews School, the King Edward VI School, and faith schools or, for further education, West Suffolk College.


    Elmswell has the benefit of a station with trains taking 12 minutes to Bury St Edmunds, 26 minutes to Ipswich, or 55 minutes to Cambridge. The A14 which passes Elmswell winds itself across country and leads to Cambridge and the North as well as Ipswich and the east coast via major routes such as the A11 and A12. The nearest airport is Stansted which is only 48 miles distant.*

    We're proud to unveil historic plaque at Elmswell development

    Our East Anglia team is proud to have unveiled a commemorative display from 1911 at its Kingsbrook Place development, in Elmswell, to celebrate the heritage of the site.

    Once home to St Edmunds Bacon Factory, hundreds of local Elmswell residents were employed at the factory, until its closure in 1996. Working with Elmswell Parish Council, we have placed an original foundation stone from the factory at the entrance to the Kingsbrook Place development, to celebrate the role the factory had once played in this tight-knit community.

    Representatives from Elmswell Parish Council including Parish Clerk Peter Dow, Council Chairman Cllr Fred Pallett, Cllr Mike Friend, Cllr Peter Edmonds, Cllr Julia Taber, Cllr Chris Wiley, Cllr David Hawes, Cllr David Barker and Cllr Dick Burch, attended the unveiling on Saturday 15th December.

    Council Chairman Cllr Fred Pallett, said: “We’d like to thank Taylor Wimpey on behalf of the community for celebrating the heritage of the local area. It’s great to see that St Edmunds Bacon Factory has been commemorated, as it was an important part of the Elmswell community and is still remembered fondly by many.”

    Caroline Carter, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Anglia, said: “Our Kingsbrook Place development will always be tied to St Edmunds Bacon Factory so we’re delighted to celebrate the role that the factory once played in the Elmswell community. We’re proud to have placed an original foundation stone from the factory at the front of the development, so that new and existing residents can learn about the history of the community in which they live.”


    Community contributions

    As well as providing much-needed high-quality homes for the local area, our proposed development will contribute towards a range of services and infrastructure provisions through a Section 106 agreement.

    Section 106 contributions have already been agreed with Mid Suffolk District Council as part of the outline planning permission for the site. S106 agreements include provision for contributions to mitigate the impact of the development on local services. Taylor Wimpey will provide more than £2.75million in contributions as part of the S106 agreement.

    This includes:

    • £1.3m towards the Hawk End footpath level crossing mitigation scheme

    • £695,730 towards improvement to sports/leisure facilities in the area

    • £575,130 towards primary school education

    • £75,240 towards pre-school education

    • £65,086 towards healthcare

    • £40,534 towards libraries

    Taylor Wimpey will also provide the following as part of the S106:

    • An area of Public Open Space

    • A Junior Outdoor Play Space

    • Pedestrian improvements

    • A Travel Plan

    New housing developments also benefit the local community by generating additional local authority income. It is estimated that, based on the proposed number of new homes, an additional £198,550 per year will be paid to the local authority through Council Tax revenues.   The Local Authority will also receive £1.2 million over six years through the New Homes Bonus. This is a grant paid by central government to Local councils for increasing the amount of homes in their area.
