Viewed from the church porch. The war memorial can be seen at left. Trunch is a small village with a population of about 800, located three miles north of North Walsham and two miles from the coast at Mundesley. The parish covers an area of 5.5 square kilometres. The village - dominated by St Botholph's church > Link - is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and can trace its history back to 1066. The name Trunch is believed to derive from a Danish word which means 'weighing place' and a market is said to have been held there as late as the 16th century. There is a village store and post office, the Crown Inn, and a number of attractive houses and converted barns. Once there also used to be a large brewery which was built in 1837 by William Primrose, whose family used to live in the parish for three centuries - the brewery has since closed. In English folk music the fictional village of St Just-near-Trunch is famous for being the home of the satirical band called 'The Kipper Family'.
