Loddon is a small market town about 12 miles southeast of Norwich on the River Chet, a tributary of the River Yare within The Broads National Park, Britain’s largest protected wetland. The name "Loddon" is thought to mean muddy river in Celtic in reference to the Chet.
Wikipedia has this to say about Loddon:
The earliest written mention of Loddon (Lodne) is in the will of Ælfric Modercope written in 1042 or 1043. In the will Ælfric split his land holdings in Loddon, Bergh Apton and Barton between the Bishops of Bury, Ely and St Benet of Holme. Ælfric held 450 acres (1.8 km2) of land in Loddon and was by far the biggest landowner. His manor house is believed to have been close by the church overlooking the river and the fields are known as Manor Yards. The Parish Council adopted Ælfric for Loddon's town sign in 1961 and the bronze statue still stands on Farthing Green.
