"ALPINGTON, a pleasant village on the southern acclivity of a lofty ridge, near Yelverton, 6½ miles S.E. by S. of Norwich, has in its parish 197 souls, and about 520 acres of land, mostly belonging to the Earl of Rosebery. Its church was dilapidated many centuries ago, and no traces of it now remain. Its rectory has been consolidated from an early period with that of Yelverton, a parish on the opposite side of the hill, with which Alpington was united also for the support of the poor, till about 1836. The tithes of the two parishes have been commuted for about £410 per annum. . . . Here is a small National School." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Mike Bristow]
