The town offers an extensive range of day to day amenities and facilities with the benefit of a mainline railway station connecting to London, Liverpool Street and Norwich. 

The Parkside Court development was constructed in the mid 1980's by Dencora as a purpose built retirement complex of some 40 or so flats. The property is a bright and airy leasehold flat located at first floor level and providing spacious lateral living. The property in question is one of only a handful which has a larger than average size reception room. Over the years the property has been well maintained and has the benefit of sealed unit double glazing. The construction of the building is of traditional brick and block cavity wall construction under an interlocking tiled roof. It should be noted that the internal walls in the flat are of block work helping reduce heat loss and sound.

The property is held on a long leasehold basis, 99 years from when it was originally granted in 1985.
