A designated Conservation Area, the village of Thorpeness includes many interesting features and a number of Listed Buildings. Local architect, artist and poet Cecil Howard Lay was born at Aldringham School House in 1885 during the 40 years when his father was Schoolmaster. Cecil Lay grew up in Aldringham and returned to the village after the first World War. Buildings he designed are scattered around the area.
