CASTLE ACRE Castle Acre is a picturesque village about four miles from the market town of Swaffham and is well known for its 13th century priory and castle ruins. There are interesting narrow streets which focus around the village green where a tearoom, a toy shop and pub/restaurant can be found. At the centre is a fine church and further out a grocery shop. Castle Acre is the mid-point on Peddars Way, the old roman road built to speed soldiers from the south to control the rebellious Iceni. The River Nar flows through fields surrounding the village and these offer an ideal area for country walks. In 2009 a new school was built catering for ages up to year six.
