Carbrooke is positioned on the main Norwich to Watton Road which also leads on to Thetford, and eventually to London, or to Swaffham and North. We have good through roads running through the centre of the village in all directions North, South, East and West. We have 3 large farms, bringing in new landlords and employers over the years with their staff and stories of the outside world. As placed it was reasonably easy for our residents to get in and out of the village and on to other parts of Norfolk or Britain, by walking, riding and later train travel.
