About Grundisburgh

Grundisburgh is a large village, pleasantly set around a central green with a stream running through it. It was recorded in Domesday as "Grundesbur", "Grundesburg", "Grundesburh" or "Grundesburc". John Speed's 1610 map shows the village as "Grunde┼┐boro".

Basts, just to the east of the church, is a fine Tudor building, rebuilt by Thomas Awall. The father of his wife, Alice, was the master cook to Edward IV and Henry VII.

Post Mill Gardens mark the location of a mill built in 1807, which worked until 1929. After part-demolition in 1930, the remains were made part of a house. Another mill, a miniature smock mill, stood a short distance north-west of the post mill until its demolition in about 1957.
