The are includes the parishes of Somerleyton, Ashby and Herringfleet.  Somerleyton is a wonderful example of a model village (estate village) and is famous not only for Somerleyton Hall which is open to the public, but also for being the home of Christopher Cockerell, the inventor of the Hovercraft. Unveiled in 2010 the Hovercraft Column commemorates his invention.
