About Swilland

Swilland was listed in Domesday as "Suinlanda", which means "land where pigs are kept".

The remains of a large post mill dating from about 1800 and working until 1938, can still be seen near the junction of High Road and Charity Lane. It's now used as a pottery gallery.

The line of a Roman road runs along the northern side of the village and is now the B1078. Brooke House at nearby Ashbocking is the headquarters of the Suffolk Wildlife Trust. Ashbocking is also the home of James White Cider.
