Great Cornard was once a village separate from the market town of Sudbury and although the two have blended together over the years, it still retains a sense of identity and community. There are local shops, including two Co-Ops (open 7 days a week) within walking distance, two nurseries, two Primary Schools, a Library, Community Centre and three Churches. There is also a chemist, Post Office (McColls) and fish and chip shop. Also the famous Thomas Gainsborough School housed in a superb modern building. There are bus connections on the Bury St Edmunds to Colchester route passing through Sudbury and Lavenham and others to Ipswich. Sudbury has a main line station linking through to the main London Liverpool Street to Colchester line and also multiple shopping facilities, a modern swimming pool/leisure complex and small Quayside Theatre as well as many clubs and associations.
