Kersey is a small village located in the Babergh district of Suffolk. It has a picturesque ford running through the middle of it made famous in the very first episode of Lovejoy when Eric and Lovejoy drive through the ‘splash’ in a motorcycle and side-car soaking Lady Jane who was giving a presentation at the time.

The village is surrounded by beautiful countryside popular with walkers. There is an old church at the top of the village made of flint and stone.

Kersey cloth is believed to originate from here.

Kersey ford is a popular tourist stop for photos on any tour of Suffolk.

The village is a 15-minute drive from Lavenham.
