RCHM Index Map for Orwell

The map above was prepared by the Royal Commission on Historic Monuments to identify all the historic houses and other buildings which existed in Orwell in 1968. Most of these still survive, and a brief description of them will be found on the appropriate Street Walks pages on this site. Some of the houses also have their own detailed web pages here, and can be accessed by clicking on the name of the property if it is shown underlined.

If you are a visitor to our village, you may like to know that there is a car park halfway along the High Street, and that there are public toilets in the Pavilion building on the recreation ground at the southern end of Town Green Road.
