Ludham stands in an area of Norfolk now known as The Norfolk Broads. It is surrounded on 3 sides by the rivers Ant, Bure and Thurne and it has it’s own small broad, Womack Water.
The centre of the village is the crossroads near to St Catherine’s church, where the Norwich, Yarmouth and Catfield roads meet. Here you will find shops, a pub and pretty thatched cottages as well as the church itself.
Further shops and another pub can be found near to Ludham Bridge in the hamlet of Johnson Street. The How Hill estate occupies much of the north west of the village and here can be found a small museum and nature trail.
There is an extensive network of public footpaths and permissive paths allowing access to most parts of the parish. There is plenty of wildlife to see.
Boats can be moored in Womack Water (where there are further shops), at How Hill, Ludham Bridge, St Benet’s and Coldharbour. There is even a small airfield if you want to arrive by plane.
