Leiston cum Sizewell is a rural town with a population of 5,500. It is situated one mile from the Suffolk Coast and is included in the designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with Suffolk Sandlings and RSPB Minsmere being close by. This area is a haven for walkers and cyclists wishing to explore the Suffolk coastline. It has a diverse community and owes much of its heritage to the Richard Garrett Works, established at the end of the 1700’s. It ran until the early 1970s and the town developed alongside the industry. This is apparent in the style of the town architecture which bears resemblance to the pit towns of south Yorkshire. The Long Shop museum in Leiston displays many of the engines manufactured by Garretts.
Leiston is the home of the oldest purpose built cinema in the country and celebrated its centenary in 2014.
