Suffolk has a long and varied history that dates well back into antiquity. It was an important centre for early Iron Age people due to its position in the region and its wealth of natural resources – especially good farmland. In the Medieval period, it was part of the Danelaw and saw significant battles between Saxons and Vikings. During the Elizabethan era, Suffolk was a major agricultural centre and remained so until the turn of the 19th century when industry began to take over.
Suffolk is located in East Anglia in England, bordered by Norfolk to the North and Essex to the South. It covers an area of just under 1,400 square miles and has a population of around 800,000 people. The county includes two separate areas - West Suffolk and East Suffolk - which were merged for local government purposes in 1974.
Suffolk has excellent motorway access with both the A14 and M11 running through the county. This makes it very easy for people to travel in and out without having to go too far. In addition, there are several other major roads that connect Suffolk with the rest of England – making it ideal for logistics.
The economy of Suffolk is mainly based on agriculture, with around 28% of its workforce employed in this sector. Other industries include engineering, food processing, tourism and technology. The area has a long history of industry which continues today with many businesses setting up shop here.
As mentioned above, the population of Suffolk is estimated to be around 800,000 people. This makes it one of the most densely populated counties in England and Wales. It is estimated that the population has grown by 3% since 2011.
In recent years, Suffolk has seen a lot of investment from both public and private sectors. The county has benefited from some major infrastructure projects which have helped to boost its economy – things such as improved transport links and new business parks. There is also a lot of focus on developing renewable energy sources which will provide additional jobs and investment for the future.
