LETHERINGSETT Standing on the banks of the Glaven Valley, listed in 'Hidden Places of East Anglia' as "A truly charming place in the most delightful of settings". Letheringsett is famous for its working mill. The miller, Mike Thurlow, has been voted Food Hero of the Year by UKTV. The village has a 15 minute brisk uphill walk to the attractive Georgian town of Holt. Most of Holt was destroyed in a great fire in 1708.and was rebuilt in the style of the time - so we have a wonderful Georgian main street. The town has a wealth of excellent shops, pubs and restaurants and is, of course, the home of Gresham's School which was founded in 1555.
