The old Pound in Blundeston
The old pound by the junction of Church Road and Pound Lane - it was used for storing stray animals. This view was taken from Pound Lane.

Blundeston is the birthplace of 'David Copperfield', in the novel of the same name by Charles Dickens. Despite local legend, it is difficult to tell whether Dickens actually visited here, or stayed at Somerleyton Hall > LinkExternal link in the neighbouring village. Blundeston no longer has a shop but there is a Primary School; St Mary's church, with a round tower dating from Saxon times, and two pubs. On the southern edge of the village is Blundeston Prison which used to house B Category prisoners but in recent years has changed to the lower security C Category status.
