Catfield is a pretty village surrounded by agricultural land in the heart of the Norfolk Broads near the River Ant, Hickling Broad and its Nature Reserve and Barton Broad and is just three miles from the large market town of Stalham. Catfield has a pub and a church, village school, village hall, post office and shop. Catfield is mentioned in the Domesday book and was at one time a hub for the trading wherries plying the Broads. There were three staithes for loading and unloading wherries on the river Ant plus Catfield Staithe at the Common off Catfield Dyke leading to the river Thurne. Farm produce sailed out on the wherries and corn, coal, manure and building materials traded in.
