The village of Hargrave is near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk. Hargrave is a very small village having only around 120 houses and a population of around 350 people
The symbol of the village, the Hare, which features on the village sign has it's origins way back and either means 'Hare (hara) Grove' or 'Grey/Hoar (har) Grove' where the word har relates to things marking boundaries so maybe 'Boundary Grove' may have been an earlier name.
Many of the houses in the village are very old and hold considerable history. At one time the village boasted three pubs, a shop and a Post Office, all of which are unfortunately now closed
