SELLERS INSIGHT "We will miss the lovely setting of our property with its beautiful garden by the church and the many walks and cycle rides that take you through the fields and forest areas to Ampton, Culford and Great Livermere. We love cycling to The Bull at Troston for a drink and meal on a summers day and making use of the great children's play area in the village. Ingham is so convenient for Bury as well as Thetford and the A11 which takes you up into Norfolk and the coast. Time to move on to pastures new"
