Most of the old houses in this fascinating village on the River Waveney were burned down in fires during the 16th and 17th centuries but were replaced with superb Georgian buildings in a variety of subtle colours.

Many of the roofs are made from black glazed tiles so typical of this picturesque area. St. Michael’s Church dates to the mid-14th century. Its detached, four-storey bell tower added in 1500 stands nearly 100 feet high and was sold to the local council in 1977 for the princely sum of one penny.
