GRIMSTON, West Norfolk

Welcome to Grimston’s website!

Grimston Parish is a few miles east of King’s Lynn, stretching from the Eastern by-pass nearly to Massingham. People view our valley, one of the most important landscapes in West Norfolk, while passing around the Knights Hill Roundabout and heading towards Fakenham, and also when coming from the Gayton road (B1145) and over Annie Green’s Hill. Grimston was the main village with the smaller hamlet of Pott Row to the west (Pott Row is now the larger half of the parish). Our population is around c. 2,000 (c. 2,500 with our sister parishes of Roydon & Congham).

We are going to be improving the website to feature more village events, activities and organisations. Please be patient as we are working hard to make these this happen.

If you have any photographs, events or village information please email the website manager on:
