Knapton’s amazing response to the Coronavirus

Led by the Parish Council, the Knapton Angels are local volunteers that want to make a difference for any parishioner who is self-isolating, are of an age or classified as vulnerable as a result of the Coronavirus.
We can;

  • collect prescriptions and deliver your medication to you
  • collect vital groceries and supplies and deliver them to you
  • post important parcels and letters to loved ones
  • be on the end of a phone to offer support

Since 21st March, the Angels have responded to over fifty requests for help from our parishioners and are ready and waiting to help anyone in need and you may even get you a little surprise to help brighten your day…

Due to Government guidance regarding social gatherings and the need for social distancing, most events to be held in the Village Hall have been cancelled.
Please check with the organiser of the event to find out when these events will resume.  Clubs affected are;

  • Zumba Gold / Seated
  • Knitting & Stitching Group

Following Government guidance regarding social gatherings, the need for social distancing and necessary actions related to public spaces, the Parish Council has closed the village playground for the foreseeable future, surrounding each unit in Caution tape, and posted signs around it explaining that it is closed and should not be used.

It is vital that every effort is made to avoid public gatherings and allow the possible harbouring of the virus on the play equipment,

Perched 43m above sea level on a hill with views of the sea, bordered by farmer’s 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 an designated area of outstanding beauty.

We’re just three miles from the market town of North Walsham with it’s railway station and shops, eight miles from the seaside resort of Cromer with it’s pier, theatre and famous crab industry 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

Our shiny new Village Short Stay Car Park, courtesy of Victory Homes, is now OPEN to visitors to the village and users of the Village Hall.

It’s sited in Hall Lane with safe pedestrian access almost opposite the Village Hall and vehicular access via the entrance in School Close.

  • safe pathway around the perimeter of the car park
  • nine car park spaces
  • one disabled space
  • four bicycle racks

We have a lot more details about the car park, including pictures, on our dedicated car park page.

You can also find out how to request Overnight Parking Permits here, as the Parish Council is obliged to have unauthorised vehicles parked overnight removed.

We hope the car park makes access to functions and meetings in the Village Hall an even more pleasurable experience.   Enjoy.

We are surrounded by beautiful, country Quiet Lanes weaving their way through our parish…
