The image below was provided by Kay & Ian Dive, and shows the cottages in front of the Sun Public House very clearly. Note the two fuel pumps to the right hand side.

On the image below you can see Hall Barn Farm, just prior to its conversion in living accomodation.

The image below was taken from Google Earth and shows that big brother is really watching us all. It simulates a height of approx 250m a.s.l.

The image below is an image provided by Ray Rollins, and shows Rectory Rd, Church Rd,Stibbard Rd, Hall Farm Rd and just about catches Manor Farm at the top of the picture.

Below are two aerial pictures of the Village Green. The one on the top was taken, looking from the green towards the Rectory Road.

And the one below is from Rectory Road towards, what was the The Sun Public House. Notice the row of cottages in front of the Sun. Also one of Smith’s coaches is clearly visable.

Another Google Earth image, this taken from a much higher view-point.

    I have been looking at the photographs of Wood Norton, and wanted to say that I used to live at what was the Sun Inn Public House. I moved there with my grandparents 1957/8 and lived there until 1967, I can remember my grandparents having a copy of the ariel photograph, not sure of the exact date but probably around about 1962/3

    I am Canadian and my grandfather’s grandfather lived in Wood Norton. My great grandfather emmigrated to Canada around 1886 and I have been trying to trace my roots further back.

    Hi, I used to live at manor farm at Fulmodeston and I went to Great Ryburgh primary school. I used to go there on Smith’s coaches. Does anyone know if David or Meg Smith are still alive? Also , does anyone have any photos of smith’s coaches? Any information would be much appreciated.

    Thanks for that Tim. I would like to visit meg next time I am out that way, but I haven’t seen her for years so she probably won’t remember me as I moved away from that area over 20 years ago.
