Although the main works have now been completed and all roads are open again, there are still works to be done, including;

  • marking the centre “bump”
  • moving and slightly changing the white lining
  • painting the 40mph gates
  • and the 40mph decal on the road

Trying to avoid being scammed by a voice on your phone or an email in your inbox is fast becoming a way of life!   How can you be sure if the polite voice on the end of the phone or the genuine looking email are really what they appear to be?
They probably are… but what if they’re not?

We have put together some simple ways that may help you to avoid being caught by these low-life


Knapton Support Hub

Events over the last few years have touched almost everyone, combining to magnify issues and problems that can seem insurmountable.
Fortunately there is support that can help to us get through these extremely difficult times and we have created a page dedicated to those services who can do just that across a wide range of issues from health & wellbeing to financial assistance to personal safety for adults and children.

Village Pond Project

We are all privileged to live Knapton in many ways, but how many of us know about our secretive little neighbours that live in the Village Pond on the edge of Wilds Way.

Great Crested Newts are a protected species and the Parish Council are about to embark on a very special project to ensure their long term safety and to make sure that we all live happily ever after side by side.    The PC has teamed up with Norfolk Coast and the Norfolk Ponds Project to create a learning environment where by helping to build it, children learn about the world around them, and they want all the children and parents in School Close and Wilds Way in particular to get involved.
The project will;

  • make the pond as safe as we can so that our younger residents can enjoy it
  • design info boards to go onto the fence
  • make the path through the trees (which forms part of the “Permissible Path” from Knapton to Knapton Green) as safe as possible
  • expand the “Bug Hotel” that currently exists in a small clearing so that parents and children can get involved to learn more about the world around us
  • add seating in the area
  • plant a small orchard area so that the space is used positively

We’ll let you know more as more details are released, but if you can’t wait you can always contact our Parish Clerk

Perched 43m above sea level on a hill with views of the sea, bordered by farm fields and long established woodland, criss-crossed by Quiet Lanes and well trodden footpaths, basking in the fresh sea air from the North Norfolk coast, Knapton is a little piece of heaven tucked away in a designated area of outstanding beauty.

gnated area of outstanding beauty.

We’re just three miles from the market town of North Walsham with it’s railway and shops, eight miles from the seaside resort of Cromer, with it’s pier and theatre and twenty miles from Norwich.

And our sleepy little village is just a mile or two from the gorgeous sandy beaches at Mundesley, Trimingham, Overstrand, Bacton and Walcott…

The tall proud cliffs add to the stunning views for walkers and beach combers alike.

But to stay safe, everyone should respect the cliffs and not try to climb them as this part of the coast has recently experienced some dramatic cliff slides

A farming community, our farmers contribute in lots of ways to our village life
