Dilham Fishery

It is the limit of Broads navigation for larger boats, but small boats, and especially non-powered boats, can travel on the North Walsham & Dilham Canal until Honing.

Its church, St Nicholas, is one of 124 existing round-tower churches in Norfolk. Attached to the nearby Dilham Hall is a fifteenth-century tower, all that remains of Dilham Castle, a fifteenth-century fortified house.
