JoilNGAY is a market town, comprised in tlie pa-
rishes of Saint Marv and the HolyTrinitv, in the hun-
dred of Waiigford; 108 miles n.e. by n. from London,
40 N.E. by N. from Ipswich, 20 s.w. from Yarmontli,
14 s.s.e. from Norwich, and 17 n.e. from Diss — the
last named a station on tiie Eastern Union railway.
Tlie town, Winch is pleasantly situated on the river
Wavtiiey (navigable thus tar for barges, &c.), was de-
gtroved by fire in 1(J88, wlien the loss was computed at
jE.SO.OOO ; after this period it was neatly lebuilt. The
principal .stiet-ts, uhith aie bioad, well paved, and
gas-lighted, branch out from the markei ])lace towards
the gieat roads leading to Norwich, Yainiouili, Huiy,
Ipswich, Beccles, and Lowestoft ; and each of these
being terminated by a handsome edifice, produces,
at first sight, a very favomable im|)ression. The
Tiuatre has lately been converted into a handsome
Corn E.xcliange — a great convenience to the coin
dealfrs attending the market. Upon the Wavenev,
■which tiearly surrounds the town, a considerable trade
exists in corn, malt, flour, coal, lime, &c. Among the
other prominent trades are an extensive letter-press
piinting establi-hment atid stereotype foundry, a pajjci
mill, atidasilk crape manufactoiy — the latter at Ditch-
ingham. In ancient times the river Wavetiey was a
much hroader stream than it is at present, and liunga.
was then called Le-/ion-Eye, or the ' Good Island,'
being nearlv surrounded by water — as it still is on three
sides. It was granted, with numerous other matiors,
by Williatn the Coii(|ueror, to Roiitr Higod, who wa-
afterwards created Earl of Norfolk : he is supposed lo
have built Bungay Castlf, which, from its comniandint:
situation, on a bold eminence oveihioking theiivei
Waveney, and the great strength of its fortifications,
was boasted of by Hugh, the next Earl, as being im-
pregnable; but iti 1140 it was srormed and taken h)
King Stephen, though the refraciory Earl had said —

'• Were I in my Castle of Bungay,
Upon the waierof Waveney,
I would ne care lor the King of Cockney "

The form of the castle appears to have been octangular ■•
the ruins of two round portal towers, and portions ol
the west and south west angles are still standing, as
also are three sides of the great towi-r or ki cp, the
walls of which are fiom sen n to ten teet thick, and
from fifteen to seventeen feet high. Within ilie walls
aie gardens belonging to the King's Head Inn, anri
pirt of these walls h ive been cotiverted into a tenacc
from whence there is a fine and commanding piosixci
of the town and fenile country sunoundii g it : this is
a spot much lesorted to by the inhabitants of 15uiga\
:n the summer time. Jietweeii the two chuiclies ap-

pear the ruins of a Benedictine nunnery, fontuled by
lloger de Glanvile, and the Countess Gundreda, bis
lady, in 1160, to the honour of God, the lilessed Virgin
Mary, and the Holy Cross. His giacf the Duke of
N( itolk is lord of the manor; and the municipal
officers of the town are those anpninted at his coiiif
leet atid baioii, held annually. The county maui>tratt>s
sit in petty sessions here every Thursday ; and Rungay
is included in the Reccles circuit of County Court
towns for the recoveiy of debts to any amount not ex-
ceeding £20.

'I'lie places of worship are, the two churches of the
parishes already named, and cliapels for Ind'-pendents,
Wesleyan Methodists, and Human Catholics. Saint
Mary's Church is a very hand-ome structure, atid, with
its fine tower, is a great ornament lo the town. It is
( onstructed of flitit and freestone, and was chiefly i e-
tuiilt after the fire of 1688, by wbich it was reduced to
ruins, some of which stdl remain at the east end of the
present building. The church of the Holy Trinitv is a
small aticient edifice, with a round tower, embattled,
and bearing severnl shields with the aitns of Thomasde
Brotherton, Eai 1 of Not folk, and the Montacute, Bigod,
BeHncham|), and other families. The living is an uii-
propiiated vicaiage, leased by the Bishop of Ely to the
Rev. Thomas Collyer, the present incutnhent. The
charities comprise a free grammar school ; ptiblic
schools, conducted upon the British and National platis,
and foi infants ; a dispensary, and some almsbonses.
There are a great number of heauiiful seats, within a
few miles of Bungay, placed in deligbthd situations.
The market place is ornameined by a hntier cross,
imilt in 1690, and covered with a leaded dome, sur-
mounted by a fine figure of Justice. The maiket is
h'-ld on Thursday; a considerable cattle fair on the
lull of Mav, and a statute meeting on the 2.ith of Sep-
teinher. By the retuins for 18;U the paiisli of the Holy
Triuiiy contained l.(>(i'6 iidiahitanis, and that of Saint
Maiv 2,071 ; in 1841 they contained respectively 1,861
and 2,248

Sepaiated fiom Bungay by tlie Waveney is the vil-
lage and parish of Ditciiingiiam, in the huudied of
Loddon and county of Norfolk, containing a paiish
c lurcli, dedieatitl lo Saint Mary, a silk mill as before
stati'd, and a population of 1,124 inhabitants.

Kathi r more than half a mile from Butigay, in the
hundred of its name and county id Norfolk, is the
villige and parish of Earsham. The neat chmch of
All Saints contains some handsome mural (ahlets of
the Windliam family, a font cuiioiisly carved, and tlie
windows are enriched with some beautiful stained
glass. Population of the paiish 7^J1.
