North Elmham is a village and civil parish in the English county of Norfolk. It covers an area of 19.20km2 and had a population of 1,428 in 624 households at the 2001 census. For the purposes of local government, it falls within the district of Breckland. The Village is located along the B1145 a route which runs between King's Lynn and Mundesley.The village is about 8km north of East Dereham on the west bank of the River Wensum. North Elmham was the site of a pre-Norman cathedral, seat of the Bishop of Elmham until 1075.HistoryThe name North Elmham comes from the Old English, meaning "village where elms grow" and is first mentioned in 1035. Only ruins now survive of a Normal Chapel which is now looked after by English Heritage). The chapel is on the site of an earlier, Anglo Saxon, timber cathderal which housed the episcopal throne of the bishops of Elmham from around 672 until the episcopal see was moved to Thetford in 1071. A mid-ninth century copper-alloy hanging censer was discovered at North Elmham in 1786. The earthworks and ruins at North Elmham stewarded by English Heritage are thought to be the remains of Bishop Herbert de Losinga's late eleventh-century episcopal church and the late fourteenth century double-moated castle built on this by Henry le Despenser, Bishop of Norwich. Henry came from a powerful family who had strong links with the House of Plantagenet and the notorious 'favourites' of King Edward II of England.
