Lovely, sleepy village – looks like Miss Marple might live here. Great view of the Ness and lighthouse.
Orford Ness has an unusual history having been used as an airstrip testing facility and the site of a scarily powerful radar station during the Cold War as a defence against being attacked by low flying aircraft.
Today it is a nature reserve run by my friends at the National Trust.
Orford village has yet another Adnams pub, millions of day trippers, and the best filling station/sweet shop in Suffolk.
