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 a Co-Op (open 7 days a week) within walking distance, 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 new 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 to Colchester line (Liverpool Street) and also multiple shopping facilities, a modern swimming pool/leisure complex and small Quayside Theatre as well as many clubs and associations. Bures Road leads out of the town and contains mainly large detached houses and bungalows with large plots.
