Walpole St Andrew


The Parish

The parish of Walpole St Andrew, part of the twin settlement with Walpole St Peter, lies in the far west of Norfolk, indeed it forms a substantial part of the border with neighbouring Lincolnshire. Walpole St Andrew is located about 8 miles west of the port of King's Lynn. Walpole St Andrew is a medium sized village built largely along a main lane with two southerly branches leading to its sister settlement of Walpole St Peter. Walpole St Andrew sits in lanes about 2 miles south of the busy A17 road which links King's Lynn with Sleaford in Lincolnshire. Walpole St Andrew's origins are reputed to lie with the reclamation wall built by the Romans and the large pool that formed as a result "Wall pool" being shortened to the present village name. The area is certainly dominated by largely reclaimed land and Walpole St Andrew would have sat on the edge of what was once the estuary of the Nene. Walpole St Andrew's economy at the time of this transcript was dominated by agriculture, the reclaimed soils being flat, easily worked and very fertile have led to a strong farming culture nowadays dominated by market gardening. Most drainage hereabouts is heavily man-influenced and Walpole St Andrew's drainage is largely led to the Nene through such channels. Walpole St Andrew is sited at just 3 metres above the sea and the landscape is flat and at or even below that level for many miles. Walpole St Andrew parish was fairly typically sized for this area of Norfolk, it covered just under 2,400 acres (including two small detached portions allocated from reclamation) and would have supported a population of around 550 parishioners. In Domesday times Walpole St Andrew was a tiny holding for John, the nephew of Waleran; it could offer just a half share in a plough.

The Church

St Andrew's church sits close by the main western junction within the village but tucked away behind fronting properties. The church has documentary evidence indicating that it was built largely in the mid to late 15th century and the styling details do not contradict those dates. There is much that is Perpendicular including most of the windows and the brick and stone dressed western tower. An unusual feature of the church is the little spires at junction of nave and chancel, these hold the stairs for the rood. St Andrew is a large church with 4 bay arcades seemingly too grandiose for the size of the congregation. St Andrew's is tucked away from the main street with an entrance off Kirk Road, the approach by the gravel footway grants access to the churchyard and passes through to matching entry on Wisbech Road. The site has some trees but they do not unduly interfere with photographic angles.
