The manor given to Roger[3] included 30 acres (120,000 m2) of land and two churches. It has some of the oldest buildings in the whole part of England making it a treasure. From 1808 to 1814 Carleton Rode hosted a station in the shutter telegraph chain which connected the Admiralty in London to its naval ships in the port of Great Yarmouth.
