It is around five miles north-north-east of Bury St Edmunds. Its parish church contains rare mediaeval wall paintings including dragon-slaying and the Martyrdom of St Edmund. It has one Public House called The Bull. The village shop, formerly a Wesleyan Chapel, has been closed for some time, and is now a private residence. The centre of the village, surrounded by farms, is characterised by housing estates built through the 1950s to 1970s, with minor, more localised, expansion since. Local children attend Primary School in nearby Honington.
The local pub, The Bull, as been a central part of the village since the late 1800s, and has recently closed, leaving it boarded up. Owners, Greene King, intend to sell it as a Pub, and develop the local playing field into a housing estate.
