The village, which is of small extent, is situated on the river Badingham, and is wholly agricultural. The land is partly in common. The parish comprises the hamlet of Sibton-Green. In the vicinity are traces of a Cistercian abbey, founded by William de Cayneto, or Cheney, about 1-150, and valued at the Dissolution at £250 15s. 7d. The living is a vicarage* with the perpetual curacy of Peasenhall annexed, in the diocese of Norwich, value £200.
