Located equidistant from the port of Felixstowe and the county town of Ipswich, Old Martlesham, along the banks of the River Finn and the newer village of Martlesham Heath are a thriving community of small hamlets arranged around a large green space, much like the villages of old.
Look for a house built before 1970, however, and you'd be hard pressed to find one. This is because the village was largely created on land previously occupied by an old military base. The base was decommissioned, and thirty five years on, things have changed dramatically.
The individual hamlets have matured and the area now boasts a busy commercial quarter with a wide variety of both local and national firms across many business sectors. The older part of the village has changed too; a bypass now carries much of the heavier traffic away from the old village and this has created a quiet backwater, with an interesting blend of old and newer housing.
The shopping facilities in Martlesham Heath are a joy in comparison to many villages. The area is serviced by a large Tesco's supermarket which is easily accessed with ample parking and there are many other shops, restaurants and takeaways.
The land on the western edge of the village between Martlesham and Kesgrave, is a nationally important wildlife area and one of the few remaining heathland areas, where the Silver Studded Blue butterfly can breed successfully. Three of the 10 remaining colonies of this rare butterfly can be found here and great steps are taken to preserve what's left of their habitat.
The area is serviced by very good road (A14 / A12) and public transport links including the bus Superoute 66. This circular route operates from Ipswich Rail Station & Ipswich Town Centre to The Ipswich Hospital, Rushmere St Andrew, Kesgrave, Grange Farm and Martlesham Heath and runs every 15 minutes,
increasing to every 10 minutes in peak hours during the day. The service also operates through the night, running every 30 minutes from 1900 to midnight and hourly after that until 0500 when the daytime pattern is resumed.
