Hindringham, Norfolk

Hindringham is a small village situated seven miles north east of Fakenham in Norfolk. Settlement in the parish today is dispersed in character with the village itself comprising an intermittent scatter of farms with intermediate infilling mostly appearing to be the result of development within the last century. The church lies on rising ground just on the northerly side of the most concentrated area of present settlement, c. 600m southeast of Hall Farm, a building dating mostly to the Tudor period but associated with a moat and fishponds which may be earlier. Metal detecting in the parish has revealed evidence for all periods, including metalwork of pagan Anglo-Saxon date from and are south-east of the church.
