Formerly to east of Gorleston, presumably washed away. See (S1).
E. Rose (NAU), 27 June 1980.
However, in (S2) it is stated that this stood east of Hopton; the strip of coastline that before the county boundary was changed belonged to Corton parish (now in Hopton) was in fact the western edge of Newton parish. The village would therefore have been somewhere east of this and was eroded after 1567.
E. Rose (NAU), 11 May 1983.
