Yaxley village is situated just off the A140, Suffolk, about 1 mile west of Eye and 20 miles north of Ipswich. There are just over 200 residential properties in the village, the 12th century church of St Mary, the Yaxley Community Centre, The Cherry Tree, public house and restaurant, and the Bull Auberge, restaurant and accommodation.
The name ‘YAXLEY' means cuckoo in a woodland clearing hence the village sign is illustrated with a cuckoo. The sign also depicts a ‘Sextons Wheel' - the original wheel can still be found inside the 12th Century Church of St Mary, hanging high above the door.
The Yaxley Community Centre is run by the Community Council, which also takes a leading role in organising many of the events in the village. The Centre plays host to a number of clubs, the Cuckoo Club, Art Club, Garden Club,the Four Seasons Ladies Club and the Needlework and Craft group. These along with a number of other varied activities in the village keeps Yaxley a lively place to live.
