About

Thornham is a small coastal village about 4 miles east of Hunstanton and is situated in the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is separated from the sea by atmospheric marshes. The famous RSPB Bird Reserve at Titchwell is just two miles to the east and Holme NWT one mile away to the west.

Thornham is an attractive year round venue, popular with walkers, photographers, artists, bird watchers and cyclists who are attracted by the peace and tranquillity of this part of Norfolk. Golfers can enjoy the Royal West Norfolk Golf Club at Brancaster or the Hunstanton Golf Club in Old Hunstanton.

The village has three pub/restaurants, The Lifeboat Inn, The Chequers and The Orange Tree. Thornham Deli and Drove Farm, with its retail and food outlets is on the outskirts of the village.

Thornham Church was started in Norman times, but building came to an abrupt stop in 1348 with the scourge of the Black Death. The tower, started in 1633, was left unfinished after the Great Fire of London in 1666 when the masons departed to rebuild London. It was not to be completed until 1935 when it was built to commemorate King George V's Silver Jubilee.
