North Elmham was one of the early sites of the Bishops of East Anglia - there was a cathedral here for more than a hundred years at the start of the last millennium.

This was the site of East Anglia’s first cathedral. The original building, built of timber, was the Diocese headquarters until when Bishop Herfast transferred it to Thetford. We came here to see the Saxon Cathedral and Earthworks.

Just north of East Dereham in Norfolk is the 'Saxon Cathedral' site at North Elmham, which was the seat of the Bishops of East Anglia during the late Anglo-Saxon period until Herfast, first Norman Bishop of Elmham, moved to Thetford in His successor, Bishop Herbert de Losinge, later moved the seat to the newly built Cathedral in Norwich.

Origins. In the late Saxon period North Elmham was the principal seat of the Bishops of East Anglia and the centre of a great episcopal estate. Excavations have revealed evidence for an earlier timber structure, probably the Anglo-Saxon cathedral, which went out of use when the seat of the Bishop was transferred to Thetford in.

Today, the Diocese of Norwich consists of north, south and east Norfolk, and the north-eastern tip of Suffolk. The absence of this great church from the Norfolk Churches site has long been the elephant in the room, so to speak. And having it here at last is, I feel, a mark of how things have changed.The church of St Mary dates from the late 11th century with a 16th century clerestory and tower.

It is adjacent to the site of the See's first Cathedral, transferred to Thetford in Visible are the ruins of a Norman Bishop's Chapel now in the guardianship of English Heritage.North Elmham 79 claims; Brisley and Gateley 11 claims Includes lands from the parishes of Brisley and Gateley forming part of North Elmham Great Heath.
