Note

Oyster beds in Butley Creek, where oysters were cultivated for centuries, once enjoyed a fine reputation until the trade died out in the late 19th century. Since 1950s the beds have been gradually restored by Richard Pinney, so that today the Butley Orford Oysterage is again an established local industry offering not just oysters but also cod, bass, sole, skate, lobster, crabs and various smoked foods.
