Welcome to our new village website, which we are pleased to say meets The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) website accessibility requirements.
Many people rely on the internet as a source of information on public services, and local councils already consider those with disabilities when organising events, delivering services and public meetings. Similarly, thought had to be given to how accessible information is on council websites. Disabilities can have a significant impact on how a person can access information online, so local councils must make their websites as accessible as possible. Even making small adjustments to a website can have a considerable effect.
For more information about Accessibility, visit our Accessibility web section. You can find this in the navigation tool bar at the top of this page.
The pretty village of Tattingstone, Suffolk, sits some 6 miles south of Ipswich. It was split into two halves in the 1970s when the valley was flooded to make a 400-acre reservoir. There are three settlement areas. The main settlement includes St Mary's church, Tattingstone Park and a former workhouse which was used as a church hospital, this has now been redeveloped and is called Chedworth Place. Tattingstone Heath is a ribbon development, and the rest of the parish is linked by Lemons Hill bridge over the western end of Alton reservoir.
Tattingstone has a wealth of history and it is well worth discovering, or indeed rediscovering, what has lain forgotten for years, decades and in some cases centuries. The internet and in particular, the Tattingstone Parish Council website, provides the perfect opportunity to share and keep the heritage of the village alive. As our village changes in our own lifetimes, it is fascinating to look back and reflect on its past; to understand more about those who lived here before us and what the village used to look like. Do take a visit into our fascinating village history pages.
