Indeed, just some of the towns and villages include Bury St Edmunds - the former county town of West Suffolk - Sudbury, Newmarket, Haverhill and Mildenhall.

Brewing and malting have long been important industries for the region, while sugar beet processing has also given a boost to the local economy.
