"WALSHAM (NORTH), a market-town and parish in the hundred of TUNSTEAD, county of NORFOLK, 15 miles (N.N.B.) from Norwich, and 124 (N.B. by N.) from London, containing 2303 inhabitants. In the year 1600, nearly the whole of this town was destroyed by a fire, which, although it continued but three hours, consumed property of the value of £20,000. It is situated on the high road to Norwich, and consists of three streets diverging from a central area, in which stands the church: the inhabitants are well supplied with water. A neat theatre has been lately erected, and is opened for performances once in two years. A navigable canal passes through the parish, a short distance north-east of the town, in its course from Antingham to Yarmouth. . . . The living is a vicarage, with the rectory of Antingham St. Mary annexed, in the archdeaconry of Norfolk, and diocese of Norwich, rated in the king's books at £8, and in the patronage of the Bishop of Norwich. The church, which is dedicated to St. Mary, is a spacious structure; but the tower, having fallen in the year 1724, is in ruins."
