About Fakenham Magna

Historically known as Great Fakenham. This small village was the inspiration for several poems by Robert Bloomfield. It was recorded in Domesday as "Fachenham".

Fakenham Parva was incorporated into the Euston Estate after being depopulated by the Black Death.

Near Broom Hill Lane, an ancient occupation site has been found, probably dating to the Late Saxon era or early post-Conquest.
