In September 1933, Albert Einstein was brought to live in a small hut on Roughton Heath after fleeing Nazi Germany. Commander Oliver Locker-Lampson MP offered Einstein a refuge in Norfolk before he travelled to the United States. While here, he was sculpted by Jacob Epstein. A blue plaque commemorating Einstein's stay can be found at the entrance of the New Inn public house in the village. On 7 October 1933, he set sail from Southampton, for a new life in the United States and never returned to Europe. So there you have it, folks.

Roweton. Old English. Village by the stream.

Incidentally, is that pronounced "Rawton", "Rooton", "Ruffton", "Rofton", "Roeton", "Routon" or none of these?

Well, ladies and gentlemen, there's not a single coherent comment on this pub here, and yet it's an impressive, traditional, flint-and-pantile, period Norfolk building, sporting the Casque Marque sign.

Its website says that it doubles as a Chinese restaurant too.

Given its billing and its location, I'd have thought that it would be pretty successful. Perhaps it is, but the locals are not very internet-familiar, or just a bit shy?
