Our locality

Located on the northern side of the Waveney valley, the borders and indeed the services of Ellingham & Kirby Cane are so intertwined that the villagers chose to share the council, merging to form Kirby Cane & Ellingham Parish Council in 2007. In fact some people have one part of their house in Kirby Cane and the other part in Ellingham!
