The village green in Wormegay
The small green in the triangle between Castle Road and Saxon Way accommodates the village sign, the war memorial, a notice board, a postbox, and the remains of a medieval stone cross. For further information re the cross see: LinkExternal link.

Wormegay village is situated about 9 kilometres south of King's Lynn (King's Lynn and West Norfolk district) and covers an area of approximately 12 square kilometres. The remains of a medieval cross can be seen on the green by the junction of Castle Road and Saxon Way. Wormegay Castle, a motte and bailey earthwork, lies immediately to the west of the village centre. Wormegay once used to be grouped around its church > Link - it is dedicated to St Michael and All Angels and Holy Cross - until the mid-14th century, when the location was abandoned either because of the Black Death (the plague) which was brought to England by troops returning from the crusades to the second most important port in the country, King's Lynn, or because the land had become infertile due to over-farming.
