Holton (St Peter) is an attractive village just one mile east of Halesworth.
It benefits from its own primary school and a very active village hall, and its own church, Holton St Peter.
The dominant feature in the village is the post mill, which sits on a hill overlooking the community.
On the hill above the village in Upper Holton is the site of the a WWII airfield.
Just south of the village is the River Blyth, which emerges in Southwold and was once a major artery to Southwold Harbour, with wherries transporting cargo, and malt in particular, to be taken on by larger ships to other parts of the country. In the main park in Halesworth details of those times can be found on display boards.
