The Village of Swainsthorpe


Swainsthorpe is a village in the English County of Norfolk in England. It lies on the A140 road, approximately 5 miles south of Norwich, and just north of Newton Flotman. It covers an area of 3.38 km2 (1.31 sq mi) and had a population of 374 in 159 households at the 2001 census, the population reducing to 360 at the 2011 Census. The village had two Churches, St.Peter's and St. Mary's, the latter is now in ruins.

Swainsthorpe PC


The Parish Council is made up of members who all live in the village and represent the village on various matters.  We are effectively the third tier of local government, the other two being Norfolk County Council and South Norfolk District Council.
