Welcome to the Official Corpusty & Saxthorpe Parish Council Website

Corpusty and Saxthorpe are situated either side of the river Bure which rises at Melton Constable Park and flows on to Yarmouth. These twin villages are sixteen miles from Norwich and six miles from Aylsham, Holt and Reepham

There have obviously been settlements here from very early times as finds of flint, axes and bronze axe heads show. In Roman times, on a ridge of sand and shingle to the south west of Corpusty, iron was moulded and many pieces of iron slag have been found here.

The name Corpusty comes from the Old Norse and means ‘Corp’s stig’ that is the path of Corp (a personal name derived from Korpr, raven) Saxi was a common Danish name and Thirpe means farm, so ‘Saxi’s Farm was probably an outlying hamlet of Corpusty. Both communities have been sister villages since before the Norman Conquest.
