Clopton, County Suffolk, England, Great Britain (Clopton, a very small village is in eastern Suffolk, on the east coast of England)
Clopton is a village and civil parish in Suffolk. It is located between Ipswich and Debenham two kilometres north of Grundisburgh on the River Lark. The village is no larger than a series of houses either side of the B1078, surrounded by farm land. The village itself has no clear centre; houses and other buildings are concentrated around the four manors of Kingshall, Brendhall, Rousehall and Wascolies, all of which are mentioned in the Domesday Book.
As of 2011, the population of the parish numbered 375 people. The village previously had a school, which was built in 1875 and had capacity for 100 pupils with an average attendance of 56, however it closed in the late 1930s. Pupils instead attend schools in Grundisburgh or Woodbridge, with a bus service provided by Suffolk County Council.
World War II:
Between Clopton and the nearby village of Debach, the site of RAF Debach can be found, which was home to the USAAF 493d Bombardment Group over the course of World War II. A service memorial and the flag flown over the base can be found inside St. Mary's church at Clopton.
