About Whitton

Historically a separate parish, but now mainly subsumed into north Ipswich, though a small, separate and predominantly rural Whitton parish still exists as shown. It was recorded in Domesday as "Widituna".

See Ipswich for all 19th & 20th cent pubs that were located in Whitton.

The church's single bell dates from 1441 and is believed to be one of the oldest in the county.

A hoard of 45 silver Roman coins was once ploughed up near the old Norwich Road, along with part of a gold ingot. In 1931 (& again in 1949) Basil Brown (from Ipswich Museum) excavated the remains of a roman villa and found a mosaic floor and coins before residential building started (now modern housing in Tranmere Grove and Chesterfield Drive area).
