Pakenham - Frank Garner's Community

The Peacemaker was filmed in April 1977 at Pakenham, near Bury St. Edmunds (the
Windmill sequences), Hitcham in Suffolk (near Ipswich on the B1115) and Barton Mills
(between Newmarket and Thetford on the A11).

The Pakenham windmill was erected in 1830 and was used until the 1950s. The mill no
longer grinds but the sails still turn. The mill was restored as recently as May 2000 and
the family who owns it are welcoming to visitors who may want to see it at close
quarters. You can buy flour and oats from the mill office.

Directions: Pakenham is best reached either by the A413 out of Bury St. Edmunds. To
find out more about Pakenham visit the Pakenham village

Where to stay: The nearest hotel to Pakenham is The Grange Hotel in Thurston. The
Dark Horse Restaurant in nearby Stowlangtoft is highly recommended for evening
meals. A holiday cottage is available in Pakenham - call Caroline on 01359 231602
