Giant Redwood September 2015
Hoxne has plenty of interesting walks around the surrounding countryside, one of which passes St. Edmund's Monument that stands in the middle of a field.
This is St Edmund's hall, built as a reading room in 1880 and now used as a village hall. Legend has it that King Edmund of East Anglia was killed in Hoxne in 869 after being discovered hiding under the nearby Goldbrook Bridge. The hall has a plaque depicting the scene, as can be seen below.
