Rougham is a small village in Norfolk with about 50 houses. It has an excellent village shop.
Rougham Estate was bought in 1690 by Roger North.
There is a fine park laid out in the late 17th century and no modern development.
THREAT OF INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT
In 1999 a large landfill was threatened up against the Rougham parish boundary but the parish council and others were successful in preventing this. On the same site a huge Waste Food Plant is now threatened. This would take in up to 1000 tons of waste food a day and digest it anaerobically to make methane. The methane would be burnt to make electricity.
