Primary tabs

"WALPOLE (ST-ANDREW), a parish in the Marshland division of the hundred of FREEBRIDGE, county of NORFOLK, 8 miles (W. by S.) from Lynn-Regis, containing 360 inhabitants. The living is a discharged vicarage, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Norwich, rated in the king's books at £26. 13. 4., and in the patronage of T. Hankinson, Esq. The church is a regular well-built structure, entirely covered with lead. Walpole derives its name from the great wall raised by the Romans to defend it from the encroachments of the sea, and from an extensive pool of water near it. In a garden at the foot of this embankment, many Roman bricks, and the remains of an aqueduct, formed of earthen pipes, twenty-six in number, have been found. The estuary, called Cross Keys Wash, in the neighbourhood, may be passed on foot, at the reflux of the tides, to Long Sutton, in Lincolnshire."[Samuel Lewis, A Topographical Dictionary of England (1831) - copyright © Mel Lockie]
