Wilby today is an attractive, small village, set in the North Suffolk countryside, with a population of just over 200. We have a 13th century church, a well-regarded primary school and a village hall. The nearby village of Stradbroke has shops (bakers, butchers, general grocery and dress hire) a senior school, doctor's surgery, library, swimming pool and gymnasium.
Wilby is a predominantly agricultural area and the houses are varied, ranging from 15th century cottages and farmhouses to modern 21st century dwellings.
There is a good community spirit, with a wide variety of events to attend. Visitors comment on the friendly people, the peace and quiet and the wildlife. On the other hand there is easy access to both Norwich and Ipswich, the Suffolk Heritage Coast and, via the main-line train at Diss, to London.
