Property Spotlight on Middleton in Norfolk

English Village Conveniently Located for North Norfolk Coast

Middleton is an English village in the beautiful county of Norfolk.  From there the North Norfolk coast, with its popular beaches, is within easy reach.  Indeed, Hunstanton and Wells-Next-the-Sea beaches were given the coveted Seaside Award in 2019 and this section of Norfolk coastline is well worth a visit especially to see the wondrous sunsets there.  Many other key Norfolk attractions are also close by including the Royal Sandringham Estate, Norfolk Lavender, Bircham Windmill, Holkham Hall, Hunstanton Sea Life Sanctuary, Houghton Hall, Langham Glass, many RSPB bird reserves, Pensthorpe, Snettisham Park and Wells & Walsingham Railway.

 

It really has a warm, lovely feel about it.  The village extends across some 5 square miles taking in Fair Green in the North and Blackborough End in the South.  Middleton Golf Club boasts an 18 hole, par-71 golf course with a lovely bar and restaurant in its clubhouse which is open to non-members.  Middleton is a small population of around 1,500.  It can be found to the side of the A47 road to Norwich and is roughly three miles East of the historic town of Kings Lynn with a pedestrianised shopping area and amenities.

The heart of Middleton village itself includes a village hall, Post Office and the 14th century village church of St Mary’s where centuries of villagers have been christened, married and buried.  The Gate Inn pub/restaurant is in Fair Green whilst the pub/restaurant known as “Middleton’s” is on the A47 just across from the entry to the village proper.  You will also find a well used community centre, a number of schools, leisure and cultural facilities within the catchment.  There is a train station in Kings Lynn with a good rail service to Downham Market, Ely, Cambridge and London Kings Cross.

Norfolk is known to have had at least 18 castles built, many being built in the decades following the Norman Conquest.  As is common for such ancient buildings of times gone varying remains are left behind.  Among these you will find a famous local landmark known as  Middleton Mount where a lesser castle once stood. The castle was a motte and bailey fortress and the site has been owned and managed by The Norfolk Archaeological Trust since 2006.  It is open to the public free of charge.
