Henley is a small village just north of Ipswich in Suffolk, England.


Henley is positioned on a hill between two valleys. To the west of the village is a hill that extends down to the villages of Claydon and Barham situated in the Gipping Valley. East of the village is the Fynn Valley where the village of Witnesham is located. The main Henley Road runs through the centre of the village and provides good transport links with Ipswich. The road also connects the outer lying villages of Debenham and Gosbeck to the county town. Just outside the village is Rede Lane which runs down the hill to Claydon and provides access to the A14.


The village has a large community centre located in the centre of the village off Ashbocking Road which contains many facilities including a large hall used for sport and other functions, smaller rooms including a bar and the Henley Pre-School, a large football pitch and changing rooms and a small children's play area. The football pitch is home to Henley Athletic who currently play in Division Four of the SIL(as in 2007/2008 season). The main hall has recently hosted many dramatic companies to put on shows for the local people.

Other amenities in the village include a Pub which is a long way from the village centre called the Cross Keys. Also there is a farm shop on the corner of Mill Lane and Henley Road located opposite the Fiveways Garage and Bus stop. This is home to the Happy Hens of Henley Free range eggs and also sells sausages and other seasonal goods.

There is an intermittent bus service that runs from the village of Debenham through the centre of Henley and into Ipswich which runs every hour.
