Wickham Skeith, Suffolk

Wickham Skeith, Suffolk seems at first like two villages, one on the high ground based mainly around the village green and one on the lower part along The Street which runs parallel to the River Dove. Wickham Skeith is situated about 5 miles to the west of Eye and about 3 miles east of Finningham. The Rectory Hall was rebuilt in 1846 and is a classic piece of mid-19th century brick architecture, especially with its ‘twisting’ chimneys.
