About Blaxhall

Blaxhall is a tiny village on coastal heathlands, part of which are now a nature reserve run by Suffolk Wildlife Trust. There's a bronze age barrow on the heath. Blaxhall was recorded in Domesday as "Blachessala".

The "Blaxhall Stone" (on Stone Farm in Station Road) is a five tonne piece of sandstone, from a parent mass in Spilsby in Lincolnshire, which was deposited here by glaciers in the Ice Age some 150 000 years ago. Local legend claims that the stone grows; probably based on the understandable lack of understanding of glacial erratics in the past.
