Our Village - Filby

The village of Filby is situated on the edge of the Norfolk Broads, between Filby Broad and Ormesby Little Broad, some 6 miles north-west of Great Yarmouth and 16 miles east of the city of Norwich.

The parish covers an area of a little over 2.2 square miles (543 acres) and, according to the 2021 Census it had a population of 893. Essentially agricultural in character, until the late 1950s, Filby was known for its market gardens. It was never a ‘chocolate box’ village, with thatched cottages surrounding a quaint village green. It remains a succession of dwellings, lining the busy A1064. The village has, now, however, become an attractive base for commuters, to both Great Yarmouth and Norwich.
