Chicken Roundabout


A friend of mine lives near here and so do I, but we only realised how close we are when we started talking about the chicken roundabout.

Chicken roundabout is a unique, and special place where a colony of chickens have managed to inhabit a busy roundabout on the A143 busy main route through East Anglia to Great  Yarmouth. Loved by locals and travellers alike the chickens go about their daily life seemingly oblivious to the speeding traffic all around them. There were chickens on the site for many years before the bypass and roundabout were ever planned Рsee the history page for more information about this.

In more recent times they have received national media attention when the council tried to have them removed resulting in local protests – see the news page about this.”
