SAXLINGHAM-THORPE, near the river Tas, 7½ miles S. of Norwich, has in its parish 131 souls, and 456A. of land. The Rev. J.H. Steward is lord of the manor; but part of the soil belongs to Robt. Fellowes, Esq.

The CHURCH (St. Mary,) is an ivy-clad ruin, being dilapidated long before 1740, when the rectory, valued in the King's Book at £6 13s. 4d., was consolidated with that of Saxlingham-Nethergate.

Here is a small Baptist Chapel, built about 1818.
