We are here...
Welcome to the on-line home of the village of Denham, in the beautiful north of Suffolk. We are a small village, surrounded by farms and close to the town of Eye and the Waveney Valley.
Denham sits amid a historic landscape of World War II airfields. Immediately to the east is the site of RAF Horham airfield (so large that it straddled Denham, Horham and Hoxne parishes), used by the USAAF 95th Bomb Group from 1943 to 1945. Adjacent to Redlingfield Wood in Denham parish is the site of the airfield hospital which has been restored as a museum and a memorial those who served with the 95th in WW2.
The Officer's Club at Horham airfield (the 'Red Feather Club', also within Denham parish) has been preserved and like the hospital is occasionally open over summer months. Rumour has it that Glenn Miller, the American Big 'swing' Band leader visited the old Green Man public house in Denham around the time he and his band played at Horham air base on September 10th 1944.
Four candidates have been elected unopposed to serve as Parish Councillors from May 2, 2019. The official notice is here. There is still one vacancy on the Parish Council, which can be filled by co-option. If you are interested, please contact the Clerk (details below).
