Stow Bardolph sometimes simply referred to as Stow is a civil parish in the English county of Norfolk, lying between King's Lynn and Downham Market on the A10.It covers an area of 6100acres and had a population of 1,014 in 421 households at the 2001 census. For the purposes of local government, it falls within the district of King's Lynn and West Norfolk.HistoryThe village name evolved from Stowe Bardolf meaning "Meeting place of the Bardolfs". This was almost certainly because of connections with the Lords Bardolf, from nearby Wormegay Castle.The Stow Bardolph estate was purchased by the Hare family in 1553. The original Stow Hall was constructed in 1589 by Nicholas Hare, Master of the Rolls and Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, but fell into disrepair and was demolished. The second Stow Hall to be built was in 1796, but this to fell into disrepair and was demolished. The final Stow Hall to be built was in 1874 and was demolished in 1994 due to being beyond economic repair.Holy Trinity Parish Church was extensively restored by John Raphael Rodrigues Brandon around 1850. A wax effigy of the upper body of Sarah Hare, who died in 1744, including alarmingly lifelike face and hands, is displayed upright in a mahogany case in the Hare Chapel of the church. It is the only funerary effigy of its kind outside Westminster Abbey. There is a stained glass window to the memory of Victoria Cross winner Reverend James William Adams who was vicar here from 1896 to 1902.
