Strumpshaw is a relatively small village situated near to the A47 Norwich to Great Yarmouth road. The village is roughly 9 miles from both Great Yarmouth and Norwich and close to the Norfolk Broads. Strumpshaw merges with the larger village of Lingwood, but has its own identity and is famous for its RSPB sanctuary at Strumpshaw Fen, on the river Yare. It is commonplace to spot such birds as marsh harriers from one of the observation hides that are dotted around this beautiful fenland. Strumpshaw church, St Peter, has a thin tower and a chancel that dates to the 14th century.
