The size of the village is 4.04 square kilometres (1.56 sq mi) and the population of the village at the time of the 2001 UK census was 2076. However, the population is likely to increase over the coming years as the process of suburbanisation is taking place. Increased development in the area in the form of new houses and improved transport links such as the Norwich South Bypass has resulted in increased activity in the area. With the city of Norwich nearby, the village has become an ideal spot for commuters to reside.
