Kelsale-cum-Carlton were formerly separate parishes that became united civilly on 25 March 1885 under the Divided Parishes Act.
The Parishes lie about one mile north of Saxmundham and straddle the old A12 trunk road, with part extending west of the Saxmundham By-Pass that is the new A12. Kelsale-cum-Carlton is roughly mid-way between Ipswich and Lowestoft and about 100 miles from London.
The quiet river Fromus runs through this picturesque village, which with its timbered village Hall and Arts and Craft Lych Gate is ideally situated for exploring the Suffolk countryside.
