Major's Corner is the junction of Woodbridge Road and St. Margaret's Street in Ipswich. This junction is at a corner of a one way system, so all three roads are numbered A1156.

The junction is famous for having a giant army major swatting flies atop the public toilets at the junction. It was originally named for Joshua Major, who owned a house on the site from 1656. He became a town surveyor and designed culverts and water diversions in the town.
