Westley Village

Sunrise at Westley

Westley is a small village located just 2.5 miles from the centre of Bury St Edmunds. It lies on the west side of the town off Junction 42 of the A14.

The village has a population of approximately 190 with a mix of traditional cottages and modern houses including a recent small development of detached family houses.

Facilities are limited; there is no village shop or village hall but a small club which was formerly a social club for agricultural workers serves as the village local and social venue. The church is of historic interest and provides a focal point for the village.

Westley Reservoir

A reservoir was built in 2011 on Westley farm to provide water for irrigation of the fields. This is particularly welcome for the farm following the dryest spring in the east of England for a century.
