Barford St Botolph


The Parish

The parish of Barford lies in central Norfolk about 4 miles north of the market town of Wymondham and 8 west of the city of Norwich. Barford is a small and fairly compact village sitting on and north of the B1108 which connects Norwich with Watton. Barford maintains a small presence on the B1105 with properties and businesses lining that route but most are sited on the parallel lane a quarter mile to its north. The area would have been largely agricultural at the time of this transcript with arable farming of cereals dominating, little has changed since those times. Barford sits on a low ridge above the River Yare which drains the parish eastwards to reach the North Sea through the port of Great Yarmouth. Barford is sited at around 20 metres above the sea and the land is gently undulating to about a further 20 metres higher within a few miles of the village. Barford parish was typically small as are many in Norfolk, it covered just over 1,000 acres and would have supported a population of around 400 parishioners. IN Domesday times Barford was shared 3 ways, the majority in the hands of Count Alan of Brittany with lesser portions with Ralph of Beaufour and St Benet's Abbey. The parish could offer an impressive 25 ploughs as well as small meadows and woodlands and had 4 mills with a half share in a fifth, a wealthy place indeed in those times.

The Church

St Botolph's church sits at the far northwestern edge of Barford almost a half mile from the main group of properties. The church follows the standard design of nave & chancel with a western tower. In this case it is the chancel which is the elder, Pevsner notes the lancet windows of the Early English Gothic style and places it in the 13th century. The remainder of the church is in the typical Norfolk style of the Perpendicular and, helped by documentary sources, Pevsner places that to the later 14th century. Like many churches there were Victorian restorations which largely replaced the roof and refreshed the fenestration. The church is sited just west of the lane leading to Colton and is accessed by a short spur running to the main entrance, a local flint wall surrounds the churchyard and metal gates grant access. The churchyard is fairly open with few impediments to photography.
