Horningtoft is a very small village, situated in the county of Norfolk, England, 6 miles south of Fakenham, 7 miles north of Dereham on the B1146.

The village made the headlines in the local newspaper in 1962 when it was reported as a dying village but we are still thriving. In the late 1970s the Church was threatened with closure but with grants and the help of villagers it was saved and rededicated in 1981 and it now plays a major part in our community. In 2001 the village was in the news again when we were fortunate to obtain a Local Heritage Initiative grant of 13500 to restore part of the churchyard wall and form a Heritage Society.


Horningtoft marked the centenary of the First World War by discovering the impact the war had on our village. The Heritage Society held an exhibition entitled Horningtoft Remembers on the 19th & 20th July 2014.  Information about the residents of Horningtoft who served are availble on the Heritage Society desk in the church.
