Barsham is a village and civil parish in the Waveney district of Suffolk, England. It is about two miles (3 km) west of Beccles in the district of Waveney, and is on the edge of the Broads. It is dispersed along the B1062 Beccles to Bungay road, 1 mile, (1½ km) north-west of Ringsfield.

Barsham Holy Trinity is one of 38 existing round-tower churches in Suffolk and a Grade I listed building.

Horatio Nelson's mother Catherine Suckling was born in the former rectory on 9 May 1725. She was always with him, despite her death when he was just nine years old - "The thought of former days brings all my mother to my heart, which shows itself in my eyes," he later recorded. The house is near the main road, close to the church, which has a stained glass window commemorating the Battle of Trafalgar.
