Churchyard Survey

Churchyard Survey

An extensive survey of the churchyard has been completed.  This built on one initiated in 1980 by the Thurne and Clippesby WI as part of a Norfolk-wide survey of churchyards.  The grave stones have been recorded and photographed and the survey is held in digital and written form.  To keep the record up to date this is a continuing project.

Manorial Documents

In 2010 the Archive acquired the manorial documents dating back to 1720 together with the title of Lord of the Manor which is now held in Trust.  The earliest records are in Latin.  The transcription and translation of these documents is an ongoing project undertaken by the group.
