The pretty village of Woodbastwick is situated 8 miles north east of Norwich, on the edge of the Broads. St Fabian and Sebastian church received donations from the Cator family, to pay for refurbishments, in the 1870's. It has a pretty tower and thatched roofs and in the nave there is an interesting war memorial. Sixty kilometres of hedgerows were planted around Woodbastwick during King Henry VIII's reign. The Woodbastwick Marshes have been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The area supports many animals and rare plants. There are also many birds here such as the marsh harrier, and you can even spot the rare swallowtail butterfly.
Tourist Attractions in Woodbastwick
Woodfordes Brewery Shop
Slad lane, Woodbastwick Norfolk
The original brewery shop and visitor centre was a conversion of the original sampling room at one end of the brewery, but in March 2002, a new home was created in the thatched barn on the site. The new shop and visitor centre is now fully open and is located close to the Norfolk Broads, and is very popular with both locals and holiday-makers visiting Norfolk.
