Fulmodeston St Mary


The Parish

The parish of Fulmodeston lies in north central Norfolk about 5 miles east of the market town of Fakenham. Fulmodeston is a small crossroads village supplemented by the hamlet of Croxton which lies a half mile west. Fulmodeston sits in lanes equidistant from the A1067 (Fakenham to Norwich) and A148 (Fakenham to Holt) roads which form two sides of a triangle, Fulmodeston is roughly 2 miles from either. The area is almost totally devoted to arable farming, although at the time of this transcript there would have been a more mixed farming regime agriculture was ultimately the primary economic driver. The headwaters of the River Stiffkey drain the parish to the northwest before eventually reaching the North Sea through Stiffkey itself. Fulmodeston is sited at roughly 60 metres above the sea on a low ridge between the River Stiffkey and the Wensum valleys. Fulmodeston parish was quite large by Norfolk standards although parishes are larger in this area, it covered just over 2,300 acres and would have supported a population of just over 350 parishioners. In Domesday times Fulmodeston was held by one William of Warenne, it was quite a small place offering just 6 ploughs, small meadows and woodlands and a collection of enumerated livestock.

The Church

St Mary's church was abandoned in 1882 when the Christ Church was built to replace both St Mary and also Croxton St John. St Mary stands roofless and abandoned in a field a few hundred yards to the east of the lane which leads to Stibbard. The building had the usual structure of nave, chancel and western tower and was largely a construct of the Perpendicular period of church building. Nowadays it is ivy covered and the haunt of owls, foxes and badgers. The site is accessed by a short lane, not clearly indicative if there's a right-of-way, leading east alongside a small plantation. Once past the farm buildings the site is obvious.
