Thornham Field Center

Welcome to Thornham's website


The 2,000 acre Thornham Estate in north Suffolk has diversified, developed and adapted to suit the needs of people living in the 21st century. Activities on the Estate include country Walks and the Walled Garden.


If you are a member of the public coming to Thornham to walk and enjoy the countryside please click the link on the left for information.


If you are interested in our Walled Garden please click the link on the left or here for information.

Please note the Thornham Walled Garden is open to the general public between 9am and 4 pm at weekends and during school holidays when staff and volunteers are on site.

We are keen for people to visit the garden and see the work of the learners at Beyond the Wall so if you would like to pre-arrange a visit, please contact us in advance on .

If you are interested in volunteering to help open the Walled Garden we are currently looking for people who are available between March and September on Saturdays and Sundays between the hours of 12am and 4pm.

Volunteers would not be expected to know anything about gardening or the Beyond the Wall charity, the main responsibility is just to be there on site.

It’s a pleasant place to read a book or just spend some time …

If you are willing to help out please contact Ben Hall, Commercial Manager, Beyond the Wall for further details – or .
