The Parish of Northwold & Whittington is located in West Norfolk, roughly equidistant between the market towns of Thetford, Swaffham and Downham Market. Northwold is the larger of the two villages in the Parish and has both a pub and sports and social club. Whittington has a garage and caravan & camping site, as well as being the base for a number of local businesses. The two villages are located approximately 2 miles apart and both are positioned alongside the River Wissey, which later joins with the Great Ouse before flowing out to sea at Kings Lynn.


The next meeting of Northwold and Whittington Parish Council will be held at Northwold Village Hall, 7.30pm, Wednesday 9th January 2019.
