Rickinghall is a village in the northern part of the Mid Suffolk district of Suffolk, England. The village is split between two parishes, Rickinghall Inferior and Rickinghall Superior, which join with Botesdale parish to make a single community which lies six miles south-west of the Norfolk market town of Diss. The county boundary with Norfolk is about three miles to the north.
Botesdale and Rickinghall form an extended village around the former main road from Bury St Edmunds to Diss. The modern A143 road from Bury St Edmunds joins the A140 just east of Diss and now by-passes the settlement to the south. **
