EASTON PARISH COUNCIL

Can you help us find Private Pumping Stations in your parish?

We may have some good news for those of your parishioners who have a private pumping station on their property, and have not yet registered it with Anglian Water.

Currently, homeowners spend hundreds of pounds every year for electricity running costs, maintenance and repairs to look after these private pumping stations. They may even have been flooded if it’s broken down in the past.  

As of 1 October 2016, many of these private pumping stations automatically transferred over to Anglian Water and became our responsibility. We have taken over all of the maintenance and the running costs too, saving customers hassle, worry and money.

We’d like to ask for your support in letting local residents know about this, and asking them to get in touch with us if they think they have a private pumping station. 

To help customers identify and report the pumping stations, further information can be found: www.anglianwater.co.uk/privatepumpingstation

There is a poster which you can download here

Village Green

The village green, looking towards Wickham Market


Easton lies in the gentle valley of the river Deben some two and a half miles from Wickham Market to the southeast and five miles from Framlingham to the north. The river marks the boundary between Letheringham to the southwest and Easton. The main street of the village lies north of the river which bends in a loop quite close to the centre of the village and then away again. There are many acres of water meadows on either side of the river, which often flood. To the north east of the village the land rises to a plateau where the Cricket Club, Bowls Club and Cemerty are located.

Historically the village is mentioned in the Domesday and was linked to the manor of Martley until 1627, when Sir Arthur Wingfield made the 150 acre estate his home. In 1688 Easton was purchased by the Prince of Orange for the Earl of Rochford. The fifth Earl made many improvements before he died in 1830. These included surrounding the Easton Estate and house with its famous "crinkle-crankle wall".

On the death of the fifth Earl, the estate went to the Duke of Hamilton, who rarely lived there and left the affairs in the hands of an agent who lived in the 17 Century Agent’s house next to the White Horse Inn. Lady Hamilton was responsible for the gothic windows in many of the Easton properties, for the Victorian dairy and other buildings at the Easton Farm Park, also the school, the Village Hall and many other features such as the round houses.

The Estate house was demolished fairly early in the 1920s with many estate buildings conveted into dwellings. A new group of houses were built in the 1960s in Harriers Walk (behind the Wall).

The village consisits of approximately 141 houses of varying ages from half-timbererd to modern and has a large church befitting the Earls of Rochford and the Hamiltons.

The centre of the village around the green, the church and the pub is a conservation area and the village is enhanced by an open space more or less opposite the pub, part of which is used as a car park.
