Lovely rural town in Breckland, South Norfolk. RAF Watton played a large part in the growth of the economy of the town during and after World War II but today, most of the station has been developed in a housing and the runway turned back to agriculture. Like many Norfolk markets, the bustling Watton market always has a wide variety of fresh local produce available. Regional delicacies as samphire and fresh water crayfish are available when in season. Wayland Wood near Watton is the setting of the old English ballad "The Babes in the Wood". This is the story of two children abandoned and left to die by their wicked uncle and it also provides the inspiration for the town sign! The wood is now a nature reserve owned by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust.
