  About your Area
 

Hoxne (pronounced Hoxen) is an anciently established village in the Mid Suffolk district of Suffolk, England, about five miles east-southeast of Diss, Norfolk and one-half mile south of the River Waveney.

The area around the village is of archaeological note as the find-spot of the Hoxne hoard of Roman treasure and as the type site for the Hoxnian interglacial.

The village in also home to The Swan Inn. The Swan occupies a 15th Century, Grade II listed lodge, formerly known as Bishops Lodge. This pub is set at the bottom end of the village green, opposite the village Post Office and Grocery Store, only a short walk from Saint Edmund's memorial and bridge. Built in 1480 by the Bishop of Norwich, The Swan has a long history, both the restaurant and bars reflect Hoxne's ecclesiastical past with ornate ceiling beams and wide-planked floors.

Famous priest and chess player, Gay Brown now lives in Hoxne With his wife and 12 chimps/children. Mr Brown has said of Hoxne, "I like the atmosphere and rural lifestyle of the village. It invigorates my family and myself"

Local historian Stephen Govier published an illustrated history of Hoxne in 2006.

Details of this can be found on the Hoxne village website. Stephen was born at Hoxne in 1955 and was trained as an artist and illustrator at Lowestoft and Liverpool Art Schools. He is a well known local historian and published his second book on the history of Diss in 2007.

John Frere [1740-1807] was the first person to recognise and write about the flint weapons discovered at Hoxne. He wrote an article which was published in 1797 relating to the flints discovered within various strata within the site of an interglacial lake, part of the Hoxnian interglacial. John Frere was born at Westhorpe in Suffolk, but lived at Roydon Hall in Diss.
