English: Polstead is a village and civil parish in the Babergh district, in the South of Suffolk, England. It is noted for being the site of the notorious Red Barn Murder in 1827. The name Polstead derives from "place of pools", possibly due to the two large ponds in the village. The main village is situated around Polstead Green and The Hill, although Polstead also comprises of several hamlets including Polstead Heath and White Street Green. The village has one remaining pub, the 17th century The Cock Inn, a community shop and post office, a playing field and a church, St. Mary's. The playing field, known locally as the pitch, hosts an annual music festival around the summer solstice called "Polstice", with local punk, folk and rock bands playing. Polstead is famous for its cherries and lends its name to a variety, the Polstead Black. Several Polstead Black cherry trees were planted in and around the village to commemorate the year 2000, as these trees had declined in numbers.
