One of the county's most northerly parishes (and home to out most northerly pub), Lound was recorded in Domesday as "Lunda". The focal centre is The Mardle , a large duck pond, good views of which can be obtained from inside the pub! A tower mill, built in 1837, has been converted into residential use. Another mill nearby has gone without trace. Traces of what are said to have been prehistoric or Roman-era Lake Dwellings have been found in the area.
 Mardle is a Suffolk dialect word for a conversation. Because cattle and other beasts would stop at a pond to drink when being driven, the drovers would stop and chat. So a mardle also came to mean a pond.
