Whittley Parish

The historic market town of Diss is located on the Norfolk/Suffolk border and is situated in the beautiful Waveney Valley. The town has one of the deepest natural inland lakes in the country, which covers an area of 6 acres and is very much the focal point of the town. The town has a population approaching 7,000. However, the town also serves a recognised rural catchment area of approximately 40,000 people. Diss town centre comprises some excellent examples of Georgian and Edwardian buildings, as well as a public park, the Mere and a number of thriving shopping streets and the market place.

The Market operates every Friday and coincides with a local antiques and collectables auction. The town has a mainline railway station which gives access to London, Liverpool Street in approximately 90 minutes and Norwich in approximately 17 minutes, meaning Diss is a great location for commuters wanting access to either location.
