Welcome to Hickling Village,Norfolk
Temperature in Hickling
Welcome to this lovely Broadland Village, to its Churches and Public Houses.
Whether you come to Hickling by car, coach, boat, staying in one of our holiday homes or Hiring a Boat or even Relaxing Fishing, our welcome is cordial and sincere.
Hickling Broad is the largest of all the Norfolk Broads, situated on the River Thurne,
and one of the homes of The Norfolk Wildlife Trust which can be found at the end of Stubb Road.
Hickling is a large and scattered village with its wide open spaces, fields and farms, one third is marsh and common land with a large expanse of water covering over 400 acres.
The houses are a mixture of old and new, with flint and stone, some thatched and colour washed.
We are only a couple of miles from wide open sandy beaches at
Sea Palling & Waxham
where seals can often be found in Winter.
There are a number of Artists and Enterprises within the village and it is a thriving community, with a number of Clubs & Organisations including U3A, Bridge Club, Keep Fit, Art Group, The Tuesday Club, Craft Group,
Bowls Club, Community Gym, catering for all ages

The village has a fine fourteenth century church, St Mary's, a building consisting of stone and polished flints, with chancel, nave, and aisles, south porch and parvis, a square embattlement tower housing five bells.
The present Methodist Church was built in 1883 on the same site where previously stood a small clay building. The Methodist Church is open all day.
The Chapel Pit at the Methodist Church is a place where clay was once dug and is now partly a car park and picnic area; wild flowers are found there and ducks wait with eager anticipation for any left over scraps.

The village sign is an artist's impression of the old priory ruins and has four roundels depicting the reed cutter, swallow-tail butterfly, the bittern and a peat digger. The priory was founded in 1185 and its monks were granted a charter by King John to hold a weekly market at Town Street for the sale of their produce.

In 1981 the village won The Best Kept Village Award for Norfolk, and in 1983 the Best Kept Churchyard Award
.
