Pudding Norton Hall
The ruined St Margaret's church can be seen in mid-distance (at left). Pudding Norton > LinkExternal link formed part of the Fakenham estate. In 1086 it consisted of "60 acres of land, one boardar, half a plough team, half an acre of meadow, one runcey or cob and one pig" (A Davison, Deserted villages in Norfolk). Eight acres of land belonged to the church. There were 15 heads of households in 1329. It appears that the hamlet was not affected by the Black Death and still had more than 10 households in 1428. In 1557 money was left by the then flockmaster, Henry Fermor, for the repair of the church but apparently his successors did nothing to preserve the village. By 1602 the church was in ruins. In Blomefield's History of Norfolk, compiled during the 18th century, the hamlet was described as being depopulated with only a hall or manor house and a farmhouse remaining and part of the church tower still standing, much as it is today. The ruin is situated in a pasture to the east of the B1146 road, just south of Pudding Norton Hall.
