Kersey is a village and civil parish in the Babergh district in Suffolk, in the east of England. The main street has a ford across a stream. Its principal claim to fame is that a coarse woollen cloth called Kersey cloth takes its name from it. The cloth was presumably originally made there, but later in many other places too.

The parish contains the village of Kersey and the hamlets of Kersey Tye, Kersey Upland, Wicker Street Green and William's Green. Kersey's church is St Mary's, and the village also contains a primary school.

It has one listed building called Bridges Farmhouse. There was a Congregation house built in about 1835 which is not always used for worship. The population of the parish at the 2011 Census was 359.
