Loddon

Loddon, and it's linked neighbour Chedgrave, is a small market town to be found at the navigable end of the River Chet, in Norfolk. combined, they have a population of under four thousand, and are around 12 miles from Norwich on the A146.

Things to see and do:
The town is rich in Georgian architecture, so a walk along the Hight Street is a welcome distraction. It bustles on a Saturday with its many shops and businesses, including a Farmers Market every other week. More details of dates and its location can be found HERE. Being on the edge of Hardley Flood, an area of shallow lagoons and reed beds, you will want to spend some time walking the trail. You can see all manner of wildlife including wading birds, marsh harriers, owls and woodpeckers. Loddon is on the Wherryman's Way, a meandering walk from Norwich to Great Yarmouth, following the rivers which the trading wherries (sailed barges) would have used in times past.

Local pubs, restaurants, cafes and takeaways:
The White Horse is actually located in Chedgrave, and is a short walk turning right from the mooring basin. It offers a good food menu and has occasional evening entertainment.

The Raj is well thought of Indian restaurant on the High Street.
