This building of timber remained in use as a parish church until around the year 1100. Then Bishop Herbert de Losinga of Norwich decided to build a replacement parish church nearby. The former wooden cathedral was then pulled down and a stone chapel was built for Bishop Herbert's private use - he had a palace located nearby. It is the remains of this stone chapel, which you see here today.
The village has a shop, pub and bakery,
with further facilities available in the market town of
East Dereham five miles
distant which has an interesting range of shops and
still retain much of the charm of years gone by.
Just over 8 miles away is the
conservation village of Reepham
with its attractive 18th century market place, girded by
mellow red brick Georgian buildings.
