Brundall Railway Station, which stands in Bradestone parish, is a junction on the Brundall and Yarmouth, and the Norwich and Yarmouth lines.
Brundall House, a large brick mansion, is owned by E.W. Trafford, Esq. The Yare Yachting, Boating, and Angling Station belongs to Messrs. H. Flowers & Co., and comprises about 13 acres of land, situated in sight of Surlingham Broad, and within easy sail of the Rockland and Strumpshaw Broads.
The CHURCH (St. Lawrence) is a small building, consisting of nave and chancel, with a bell-cot containing one bell. It was partly fitted with open benches about thirty years ago, when the present roof, which is of lower pitch than the original one, was put up. The old window at the west end, which was for a long time bricked up, was opened in 1881, and in 1876 Edward William Trafford, Esq., inserted three small stained windows on the north side. The window at the east side is Perpendicular, and the others Early Decorated. Here is a holy water stoup. The font is curiously covered with lead.
The living is a rectory, valued in the King's Book at £4 10s., and consolidated with Little Plumstead and Witton. The glebe here is 9A. 3R. 16P.
