Severus Snape! Snape Suffolk
Severus Snape!

The original town of Snape stood on higher ground, around the church, but for unknown reasons over the years the town has moved nearer to the river.

Snape has been a port since Roman times, dealing mainly in coal and grain. It was the riverside location that made ship merchant Newson Garrett build his maltings in the town in 1846. He was elected Mayor of Snape in 1889.

Nowadays the malt house buildings have been converted into shops, cafe’s, art galleries and since 1967 the Snape Maltings Concert Hall. The idea for the hall came from composer Bejamin Britten, who lived in nearby and wanted a permanent base for his annual music event. Queen Elizabeth II opened the hall in 1969 and the annual music events continue to this day, attracting visitors worldwide.

To underline Snape’s maritime heritage, an Anglo-Saxon ship was found at Snape in 1862 that has been dated to 625AD.

Despite its importance as a music venue and tourist spot, Snape has a small population of just 623 living in 284 homes. The average 4-bed detached property is valued at £400,000.
