East Bergholt is a village in Suffolk, in the Stour Valley. East Bergholt is the birthplace of the painter John Constable, and the area has now become known as Constable Country, taking in the villages of East Bergholt, Capel St. Mary, Stratford St. Mary, Bentley, Dedham, Langham, Lawford and Flatford. The Church of St. Mary the Virgin was built in the 15th and 16th centuries, but is well known for the absence of a bell tower. A temporary wooden bellcage was erected in the churchyard for the bells and still exists some 500 years later. Other attractions include Old Hall, a former nunnery, later friary, which now houses the Old Hall Community, a household of about 60 people who live co-operatively and farm organically. East Bergholt Place is a woodland garden and arboretum, with a plant centre in the old kitchen garden. Flatford Mill buildings were once owned by Constableís father and are recognisable since they feature in many of his paintings. Nowadays they offer a wide-ranging programme of environment and art-based courses. Upstream from the mill is Bridge Cottage which houses an exhibition on Constable and is open to the public. East Bergholt has five pubs and a leisure centre
