Welcome to Fransham

Fransham is a rural civil parish in the Breckland District of the English county of Norfolk; and includes the villages of Great and Little Fransham. 

Great Fransham is served by All Saint’s Church and Little Fransham by St Mary’s Church, both in the Benefice of Great Dunham.

The Village Hall has been recently updated and is available to hire for private functions.


The local pub in Little Fransham, the Canary and Linnet, is just off the A47. Its name derives from the fact that the village is halfway between Norwich and King's Lynn ('canaries' and 'linnets' being the respective nicknames associated with each town and especially Norwich F.C. and

King's Lynn F.C.).

The Parish Council


The Parish Council is made up of seven members who all live in Fransham and represent the village on various matters.  


We are effectively the third tier of local government, the other two being Norfolk County Council and Breckland District Council.

The Parish Council usually meet at 7.00 pm in the Village Hall on the third Tuesday of every other month - January, March, May, July, September November.


Members of the public are very welcome to attend and are able to speak during the open forum, which is part of every meeting.


The Council are always keen to hear from anyone with ideas on how to improve local facilities.
