Bacton and Edingthorpe Villages
History of Bacton and Edingthorpe
This page will give links to material on the history of the two villages. Here, to start off, is a link to the "History, Antiquities & Geology of Bacton in Norfolk" by Charles Green which (courtesy of Google) is now downloadable in facsimile form.
We welcome contributions to the site. Please contact the Clerk with any material you would like us to consider.

Bromholm Priory is unfortunately not open to the public but you can get views of it from many parts of the village. Click on the link below to Paston Heritage for more information, or on the plan of the priory
Bacton History Group
The Bacton History Group now has its own website.
Bromholm Priory is a fascinating ruined priory of the Cluniac Order (the same Order as Castle Acre priory in the west of the county). Unfortunately it is not open to the public but you can get views of it from many parts of the village. Here we have some magnificent aerial photographs taken by local photographer Paula Sparkes from a Tiger Moth plane flown by Don Sargant (thanks to both of them for giving permission to use these pictures).
