North Wootton All Saints


The Parish

The parish of North Wootton lies in the extreme west of Norfolk, indeed it forms part of Norfolk's coat with The Wash. North Wootton, at the time of this transcript, was a small village located about 3 miles north of the port of King's Lynn; in recent times North Wootton has grown substantially as a suburb of that port and hosing is contiguous with the northern edge of King's Lynn. North Wootton is located about 1 mile north of the A148 road which connects King's Lynn with the market town of Fakenham. North Wootton is sited on the edge of the coastal marshes for The Wash and there is much land to its west which has been reclaimed from the sea, the main economic activity would have been pastoral farming on these grazing marshes. As North Wootton was an edge settlement there is also a small area of heath & common on the poor soils of the local carrstone within the parish. A series of man-influenced ditches and drains take the run-off from the parish into both Wash and River Great Ouse. North Wootton is sited at just 5 metres above sea level and much of the western portion of the parish is at or even below that mark, the east rises gently but to no great height. The extent of grazing marshes made North Wootton a large sized parish for its area, it covered just over 1,800 acres and would have supported a population of just over 200 parishioners. In Domesday times North Wootton was held directly by the King himself; despite being a small place offering just 2 ploughs it had and impressive 14 salthouses in common with its southern neighbour, South Wootton with which it was returned.

The Church

All Saints church sits at the "T" junction formed by Station Road and the main lanes through the village (the King's Lynn to Hunstanton railway run just 200 yards to its west but is now long gone. Sadly the mediaeval church no longer remains and the present building was constructed, at the expense of the local Howard family, in the 1850s in a faux Early English style. The church clearly has little to interest Pevsner as he dismisses it in just 5 lines of text. A chest-height brick wall surrounds the churchyard and forms a largely square site with a number of wooden gateways granting access. There are a few trees within the site but they do not unduly inhibit photography.
