Dersingham covers some 1,500 hectares and at its highest point is only some 50 metres above sea level. However, for the early settlers it proved to be the ideal place to live because it was on the coast but high enough to avoid flooding and had a ready supply of fresh water from its numerous springs. The village's population was counted as 4,502 in 2001 but as Dersingham has expanded, so has the population, probably now in excess of 5,000.
Dersingham Parish Council meets each month and is entitled to have 18 members drawn from the local community on it. These Councillors are elected every four years with co-options or elections when vacancies occur during the term of the Council.

The pub itself is a carrstone building steeped in royal history. Formerly a coaching inn, The Cock was damaged by fire in the 1800's and was rebuilt and named The Lamb.

As you can imagine, this has caused a good deal of alarm among residents of all our local villages.

Well done to all those who resisted the scheme!
