It lies between the town Watton, Norfolk, where the nearest high school is Wayland Academy and a fellow Wayland village of Caston, where the nearest primary school is Caston CE VA Primary School.

The village can be traced way back to the Domesday Book.

The local Griston Hall near Wayland Wood is in folklore the abode of the wicked uncle who ordered the death of his wards, the Babes in the Wood, so that he could inherit their property. The village sign reflects the story.

The village used to be made up of houses built for prison officers that worked at the prison.
