Sternfield, Suffolk :: Shared Description

LinkExternal link
Sternfield is a village in Suffolk, England. It is located 1 mile (2 km) south of Saxmundham, its post town. The village is very small and irregularly built, and is wholly agricultural.
The village contains a grade II* listed church dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene.During the 1960s and 1970s Lt. Col. Sir Eric and Lady Prue Penn lived at Sternfield House, a large house next to the church with extensive gardens and as Sir Eric was the comptroller of the Lord Chamberlain's office and a trusted presence in Buckingham Palace, senior members of the royal family came and stayed at Sternfield House on a number of occasions. Princess Margaret came most often, but the Queen also came at least once and attended St Mary Magdalene's, as did the Queen Mother.
Another notable property is Sternfield Hall, with its classic Georgian soft red brick facade and late 16th Century wing which is probably the site of a medieval manor house where on April 27, 1385 a licence to crenellate at Sternefeld (Sternfield) was granted to Sir Michael de la Pole by Richard II in year eight of his reign.
