Suffolk is full of tricky towns and villages that people have been calling the wrong names.

We wrote our first list of the most mispronounced Suffolk place names in January and our readers have since drawn our attention to several more places with tongue-twisting pronunciation. 

So, here are five more places that people continually call the wrong name:


This little village is located near Stonham Aspal and has just over 200 inhabitants. 

People often fall into the trap of trying to pronounce every single letter in this unusual name. 

Pettaugh is pronounced Pett-ah.


One of our readers reported that they had heard this Suffolk village pronounced 'Hox-nee,' which is definitely not how the locals say it. 

Hoxne rhymes with oxen and is pronounced Hox-en, with the 'e' remaining a silent character at the end.


The village is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as 'Grundesbur,' 'Grundesburg,' 'Grundesburh' or 'Grundesburc,' and is likely to have been a settlement in the Middle Anglo-Saxon era.

Suffolk locals lose a few syllables when pronouncing this name, and say Grunds-bruh.


Dunwich is nestled between Southwold and Aldeburgh and is known as a lost village due to how much has been taken into the sea by erosion. 

Many tourists travelling to Dunwich pronounce the 'w' but, similar to Greenwich in London, Dunwich is pronounced Dun-ich.


Near Sudbury with the troublesome River Stour (is it Stower or Stoor?) is a village named Alpheton. 

According to a local pronunciation guide, Alpheton is called Al-phee-ton by the locals.
