Caption for Boxford, Stone Street C1955

This hamlet is to the south of Boxford and separated from it since 1975 by the bypass. This community is a Kersey in miniature, with a tiny stream, and timber- framed, plastered, jettied and gabled houses with roof lines at all angles. It even had its own pub, The Compasses, until 1989. The shop on the right, Henry Grimwood's, closed in 1983. All the houses have been restored and the barns converted. The house to the left had pargetting decoration added in 1969.

Cabot Knewell, Family Butcher At Graham House, Boxford

Cabot Knewell, with wife Joan (nee Joan I Smith), was the master butcher at Graham House, 6 Broad Street, Boxford, from the mid 1940s to the 1970s. To the right is the Fleece. To the left, Riddlestons stationery, now a café. (The river opposite is the River Box - not the Brett; the shop front of the butchers read: C. Knewell, not C.J. Newell) After WW2, to supplement income, Cabot and Joan set up a fish and chip shop on the left shop front; the right continued to be the butchers.

Grandma & Granddad Fisher

I have wonderful memories of times spent with my grandparents when they kept The Compasses Inn. I am the youngest of six children of eldest daughter of Jim and Kit Fisher, Doris. I can remeber going to Boxford by bus from Ipswich. I used to get off the bus outside The Fleece to walk along Stone Street to The Compasses. It was always magical to walk and hear the birdsong and the sheer beauty of the countryside. My brother and sisters still make a detour through the village whenever we are in the vicinity.

Stone Street, Boxford

William Balaam born in Stone Street, Boxford in 1870 or thereabouts. He was my Grandfather's stepfather. Grandad often talked of Boxford. It is believed that later in William Balaam's life he became a Mayor or Lord Mayor - however, we are not certain which town in the UK he became Mayor of - because he moved to London at some stage and married in West Ham, Essex. His father's name was Walter Balaam. Hope someone living in Boxford, Suffolk remembers the Balaam Family. Annne
