White washed walls and thatched roofs dominate the architectural landscape in the quaint village centre of Ludham. Tracing its lineage back to Roman times when in 1016 King Cnut (Canute) founded the now ruined St Benet's Abbey (endowing it with several manors one of which was Ludham), the site of the village has long been occupied. Visit Ludham by boat and explore the grand estate of How Hill. Built as a private holiday home some 100 years ago it is now owned by the Broads Authority and provides visitors with excellent views over Turf Fen and the River Ant. Alternatively moor up at Womack Staithe and walk to the ruins of St Benet’s Abby, a structure that was integral to the history and development of the village.
