Babergh
Babergh
(pronounced /ˈbeɪbə/, BAY-bə[1]) is a local government district in Suffolk, England. Primarily a rural area, Babergh
Babergh
contains two towns of notable size: Sudbury; and until 2017, what was the administrative centre, Hadleigh.[2] Its council headquarters are currently based in Ipswich.[3][4] The district was formed on 1 April 1974 by the merger of the Borough of Sudbury, Hadleigh urban district, Cosford Rural District, Melford Rural District and Samford Rural District. The district did not have one party of councillors (nor a formal coalition of parties) exercising overall control until 2015. Babergh
Babergh
had a population of 87,740 at the 2011 Census, and covers an area of approximately 230 square miles (600 km2).[5] It is named after the old Babergh
Babergh
hundred, referred to in the Domesday Book. The southern boundary of the district is marked almost exclusively by the River Stour, which also forms the border with Essex, and it is separated from Suffolk
Suffolk
Coastal by the River Orwell. 'Constable Country' is cognate with a large tract of Babergh: drawing visitors to the conservation area Dedham Vale
