Brandon is a market town in West Suffolk of around 10,000 people. It has a long history stretching back to Neolithic times, and is mentioned in the Domesday Book as a settlement of 24 households. In medieval times Brandon provided accommodation and refreshment to pilgrims travelling north to Walsingham.
Brandon is famous for its flint mines. During the wars with France which ended at Waterloo in 1815, Brandon provided millions of gun flints for the army’s rifles, and flint knapping was an important economic activity for many years.
Brandon Town Council represents the interests of the local community. Council meetings are held on the first Monday of each month in the Old School House on Market Hill, and members of the public are welcome to attend. Agendas and minutes can be found in the relevant pages. Members’ contact details can be found on the Councillors page, and inquiries and guidance should be directed to the Town Clerk.
