Clavering is a large, scattered parish with seven ‘greens’ and three ‘ends’. The village grew up on higher ground near the confluence of the River Stort and the Kings Water stream and seems a natural place for settlement. The village name is first found in the 11th century as Claefring, meaning ‘the place where the clover grows’. It is also home to the Cricketers inn which is owned by Trevor and Sally Oliver and is where son and celebrity chef Jamie learned to cook.
