Cranworth

Primary tabs

"CRANWORTH, on the Blackwater rivulet, is a scattered village, 2½ miles S.E. of Shipdham, and 16 miles W. by S. of Norwich. Its parish contains 340 souls, and 1107 acres of fertile land, mostly belonging to T.T.D.Gurdon, Esq., the lord of the manor and patron of the rectory, valued in K.B. at £5. 18s. 6½d., and in 1831 at £326, with that of Letton annexed to it. The Rev. Philip Gurdon, M.A., is the incumbent, and the tithes of Cranworth have been commuted for £212. 14s. per annum. The Church (St. Mary) is a large structure, with a square tower, surmounted by a small wooden spire. In the chancel are several neat monuments of the Gurdons of Letton Hall. Here was anciently a village called Swathing, but it was depopulated several centuries ago. A neat School was built here in 1844, by the lord of the manor." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © E.C. ("Paddy") Apling]
