Long Stratton Area Guide
Long Stratton in Norfolk is a small town in south Norfolk, north of the market town of Diss and 12 miles south of the county town of Norwich. It is situated along the A140 that runs from Norwich to Ipswich, with regular bus services to Norwich and Diss. The mainline stations at Diss and Norwich are roughly a 20 minute drive with half-hourly train service to London Liverpool Street.
The town was once two villages: Stratton St Mary and Stratton St Michael, both of which had churches serving their parishes. St Mary’s church contains one of two examples in England of a Sexton’s wheel, a device used in the Middle Ages to determine which day to fast in honour of St Mary.
Long Stratton now has three schools: Manor Field Infant School, St Mary’s Church of England Junior School, and Long Stratton High School. Along the long main street, part of the A140, there are many shops, restaurants and takeaways and the town has two small shopping precincts and supermarket to suit every taste.
The Town Council’s Area Action Plan lays down the prospects for Long Stratton’s future growth and development, with plans for a dedicated town centre and a bypass to relieve pressure on the main high street.
Long Stratton is home to football, gymnastics, martial arts and trampoline clubs, as well as a leisure centre offering a full programme of health and fitness classes, a soft play area and a 3G pitch.
