Situated on the banks of the River Stour, close to the county border of Suffolk, the well renowned village, made famous by the painter John Constable, stands amidst some of the most picturesque countryside in East Anglia in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Dedham itself, along with its magnificent church, offers a good and interesting range of local shops, restaurants and pubs. There are playing fields, a primary school rated Outstanding at its most recent Ofsted inspection and the village is also home to the Munnings Museum. The historic town of Colchester and Suffolk's county town of Ipswich provide an extensive range of shopping, commercial, recreational and educational facilities. The main A12 dual carriageway lies about 2 miles to the west and provides a link with London's M25 motorway, the east coast ports, Stansted airport, Cambridge and the Midlands via the M11. Regular main line services run to London's Liverpool Street Station from Manningtree, which is just 2½ miles to the east, in approximately 55 minutes and from Colchester in about 50 minutes.
