Swanton Morley is a large village situated just three miles from Dereham and is well served in all respects, boasting three public houses, a primary school, a post office, a doctors sugery, a nursing home, a bakery and of course a fantastic butchers and delicatessen. If that was not enough the village also has a beautiful church that dates back to the 14th Century and a strong military history - Swanton Morley was the site of an all grass airfield during the Second World War from which Spitfires flew many missions. The former RAF base has since changed hands and is now home to the Light Dragoons, maintaining the ever strong link of this village with the armed forces.
Swanton Morley is home to The Light Dragoons, 12 Medical Sqn., Band of the Dragoon Guards and all attached personnel.
Bylaugh Hall, situated just outside Swanton Morley is a beautiful and imposing period mansion and is a perfect venue for family events, businesses or the classic country house wedding.
