About Darsham

Darsham's main population centre is tucked away a little way off the A12, as is the pub. The railway station is to the south of the village centre, adjacent to the level crossing on the A12. The village was recorded in Domesday variously as "Dersham", "Dersam" and "Diresham".

A grey lady is reputed to haunt the churchyard. Priory farm rents out cycles for those wishing to explore the area at a leisurely pace.

A post mill was erected on Priory Lane in 1801. It stopped work in 1929 and was mostly demolished in 1937; remaining parts now form part of a home.
