West Stow is a small parish in the western part of Suffolk, England. The village lies north of Bury St. Edmunds, south of Mildenhall and Thetford and west of the villages of Culford and Ingham in the area known as the Breckland. This area is located near the Lark River Valley and was settled from around AD 420-650.

Its name may come from Anglo-Saxon wēste stōw which means "deserted place", rather than "western place".
