Welcome to the Copdock & Washbrook Village Official Web Site
Although Copdock and Washbrook are two names, they are treated as one village, with one Parish Council and one Parochial Church Council. Copdock & Washbrook may be one of the longest village names in Suffolk, but the inhabitants are proud of it, and frown upon shortenings such as Copwash or Washdock!
The village lies approximately three miles south of Ipswich just off the A12 London trunk road, and about fourteen miles north of Colchester.
There are two churches within the village, both C of E. St Peter's Copdock which holds services most Sundays and St Mary's Washbrook, which is redundant and under the care of the Churches Conservation Trust, but still holds one or two services a year, and can be used for weddings under special licence.
The village is fortunate in having many sport and fellowship clubs, details are listed in this site. There is a good network of footpaths which are well maintained, thanks to the Footpath Committee of the Parish Council. For details of village walks go to the Parish Footpaths web site.
I hope you enjoy your visit to our site which is being supported by the Parish Council. If you need any information about us which is not shown here please contact me at:- firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you to all who came and sang carols around the village on the Tuesday before Christmas, and to all the villagers who gave generously, making a collection of £320 which has been sent to EACH (East Anglian Childrens' Hospice). Special thanks to Ruth & David for warming refreshments at the end of the evening.
