The Village of Southrepps in Norfolk
A visitor guide to the inland village of
Southrepps, located in North Norfolk, just under three miles from the
Norfolk Coast. The tower of Southrepps church punctuates the landscape in
this part of Norfolk, which is mostly made up of field upon field of green
and gold arable crops. A mix of thatched and brick and flint houses
decorate this tiny village.
The village is split in two by a large tract of farmland, at the top end
of the village there are two village shops and a local village inn.
On the outskirts is a nature reserve of 12.5 hectares with designated way
marked walks of two miles and another of four miles.
The Paston Way a long distance footpath of 15.25 miles also runs through
Another tall church tower is the one at the seaside resort of Cromer just
five miles from Southrepps. Here the church of St. Peter and St.
Paul measures 160 feet and used to serve as a lighthouse for coastal
shipping. Cromer is famous for its succulent crab and you can still
watch the fishermen bring their catches ashore.
In the summer months the Pavilion Theatre on Cromer Pier hosts the famous
Seaside Special, as well as other events. The Royal Cromer Golf Club, set
high on the cliffs above the town, has an eighteen hole course with
panoramic sea views.
