It is situated in drained marshlands 7 miles from King's Lynn and has a population of approximately 4,000.

The village has primary and secondary schools as well as a village hall, scout hut, and two pubs. The village is linked to King's Lynn and Spalding by a half-hourly bus service. The magnificent parish church, dedicated to St Clement is known as the "Cathedral of the Marshland", and was established in the 14th century by Edmund Gonville, rector of St Clements' and founder of Gonville College at Cambridge University. The church has some wonderful 14th and 15th century grotesques, both inside and outside, including an imp and various 'creatures'. The church is famed for its painted font cover, representing scenes from the Baptism of Christ and the Temptation of Christ.
