Littleport Main Street
As there is no actual port here,and Littleport is inland, the locals or "Little Portians" as they are sometimes referred to have various ideas as to how the village got its name -
1) There used to be an active port here at some time
2) The Queen passed through it one day on the train and said, "Oh - what a little port".
Actually, Littleport is of immense historical interest because it was built on the main Roman Road and during Roman times was used to offload salt from the North Norfolk coast so the army could pay their troops.
