Things to do: wildlife areas
Westleton is a village in the English county of Suffolk. It is located 4mi north of Leiston and 5mi miles north-east of Saxmundham near the North Sea coast. The village is on the edge of the Suffolk Sandlings, an area of lowland heathland. The village lies along the B1125 road, 2mi to the east of the A12 and Darsham railway station.Westleton Heath National Nature Reserve is 0.5mi north east of the village. The heath is crossed by a minor road from Westleton to the coastal village of Dunwich, 2mi to the east. The famous Minsmere RSPB reserve lies immediately to the east of the village.The fourteenth-century village church of St. Peter in Westleton was built by monks from Sibton Abbey near Saxmundham. The church has twice seen the collapse of its tower: in 1776 under the strain of hurricane winds; and during World War II, when the smaller wooden replacement fell under the weight of a bomb. It is a grade II* listed building.Westleton retains some other basic services, helped by its proximity to the coast and Minsmere. A Post Office, two pubs, including The Crown, an historic coaching inn dating to the 12th Century, a tea room, a bookshop and a garage remain. The bookshop, Chapel Books, has been immortalised in print in Julie Myerson's 2003 novel, Something Might Happen, as the location for a seduction scene.
