Latest reviews | Events in Loddon | 10 Places to Stay

Loddon, a small but growing community situated roughly halfway between Norwich and Lowestoft, is the most southerly Norfolk town linked to the Broads network. This is thanks to its location on the river Chet, a tributary of the Yare, which is navigable as far as Loddon. There are several boatyards located in the town serving the cruiser trade, and a sizeable mooring at Loddon Staithe. The town’s watermill was mentioned in the Domesday Book, and there is still an old wooden mill building standing over the river, although these days it is a residential and commercial centre. The town name is believed to have its roots in the Anglo-Saxon for muddy river. A further water amenity lies just outside Loddon itself – the internationally important Hardley Flood wetland site, home to many bird species. Along the river, especially at the staithe, there are some pretty walks, and the Pyes Mill picnic area that houses an intriguing wooden sculpture. The town centre, a conservation area, has much Georgian architecture, but there are several buildings of greater antiquity, most notably the 15th century Holy Trinity church built by Sir James Hobart, attorney general to Henry VII. In Holy Trinity there is a room, now used as a historical centre, located within the thickness of the church wall. The remains of the Hobart’s great house, Hales Hall, lie within the parish. Worth a look also are the old town hall, a somewhat eccentrically Dutch-gabled redbrick construction built in 1870, and Loddon House and Farthing House from the 18th century.
