About Parishes

The Coastal Group of Parishes is made up of 11 villages, 6 which are directly on the North Norfolk coast with lovely sandy beaches and the other 5 are approx 2 miles inland surrounded by farmland. Each village is made up of private, council and holiday homes and some have small caravan sites which means there is a steady stream of holiday makers during the summer months.


There are a few well-stocked general stores and several public houses and restaurants. Farming is the main occupation of these parishes producing mostly wheat, potatoes and sugar beet.


There are 10 churches, 9 of which are used regularly for Sunday worship and the congregations from each parish organise fetes, coffee mornings and various other fund-raising events throughout the year to raise money towards the cost of the Parish Share.


There is a Rector, a Local Ordained Minister and three licensed Readers serving in these parishes. To find out more about each parish please click on the individual pages.
