Wantisden is by far the smallest in population of the three parishes and mostly consists of one farm with a mixture of arable and livestock . There is also an ancient woodland known as Staverton Forest, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). There is no public right of access but there are designated footpaths which make interesting walks. It is said that there is a round table in Orford Castle which was made from a cross-section of a tree from this woodland.
An off-shoot of the farming business is Wantisden Valley which offers superb facilities for weddings, balls and parties and the very popular indoor winter craft fair,
The church is 11/12th century and has one of the finest Norman arches in the country as well as a Saxon font so it of great interest to church architects. Although there is only a small population, the church has three services a year, Rogation, Harvest and Christmas drawing people from as far afield as Ipswich.
