Robert James an eccentric and mentally ill man live here .A lady in Walberswick used to put out sandwiches for him, twice a week. When his cottage burnt down she was summoned to comfort him. I believe that he went into a care home after that. There is a memoriam to him in the July 2012 issue of Village news.
He did some strange things wandering around wearing only a plastic mac. The remains of his piano remains in the cottage, the story is that at one time he was a concert pianist.
