Loddon, Poringland and the Eastern River Valleys

The two main population centres in the Eastern River Valleys are Loddon and Poringland.

From Norman times, Loddon became a centre for trade and administration linked by the rivers Chet and Yare. In the 15th Century, James Hobart, Henry VII’s Attorney General, built Hales Hall and the Holy Trinity church which houses the remains of a rood screen with a rare portrayal of the martyrdom of St William of Norwich. Loddon is a delightful market town which has a good selection of shops and eating places.

The local economy is based around the Broads with numerous Boatyards and Offshore Services. The town also boasts a thriving information technology sector.

In the summer, Loddon becomes a hive of activity packed with boating holiday makers who choose to experience the unspoilt southern Norfolk Broads.

Poringland lies to the east of Loddon and features a population of over 3,000 residents.
