Ludham

Ludham is a quaint village within easy walking distance from Womack Staithe on the Norfolk Broads.. White washed walls and thatched roofs dominate the village centre. The village does have a shop, a butchers and a pub, ideal for those holidaying in the area.

Ludham was founded in Roman times and in 1016 King Cnut (Canute) founded the now ruined St Benet's Abbey, endowing it with several manors one of which was Ludham. Visit Ludham by boat and explore the grand estate of How Hill which was built as a private holiday home some 100 years ago it is now owned by the Broads Authority and provides visitors with excellent views over Turf Fen and the River Ant. Alternatively moor up at Womack Staithe and walk to the ruins of St Benet’s Abby, a structure that was integral to the history and development of the village.
