Tattingstone is a village and civil parish in Suffolk, located on the Shotley peninsula about 6 miles south of Ipswich. It has a population of over 500, and is the location of Tattingstone Place and the folly known as the Tattingstone Wonder.
It is a parish with 3 distinct settlements. The main settlement houses the church, Tattingstone Park and the former Stamford House of Industry, or Workhouse (17661930). This site was used as St Mary's hospital until it was redeveloped for housing in 1991. Tattingstone Heath is located on the A137, whilst a small hamlet close to the White Horse is connected to the rest of the parish by Lemons Hill bridge over the western end of Alton reservoir.
The village was split into two halves in the 1970s when the valley was flooded to make a 400-acre reservoir.
The reservoir is managed by Anglian Water and is known as Alton Water or Alton Reservoir. It is now a haven for wildlife and is used by cyclists, walkers and fishermen and for other watersports.
Tattingstone Wonder is a strange folly built in about 1790 for local Squire, Edward White, who then lived in the Hall. Originally a pair of cottages, a third was added together with a mock church tower and facade to give his neighbours "something to wonder at".
The village has two pubs, the Wheatsheaf and the White Horse but the Orange Box (formerly Waterloo House) closed some time ago. The Village shop is also now closed.
