Cringleford is a village in Norfolk, England on the outskirts of Norwich. The village is in the South Norfolk local government district but the Norwich South Parliamentary constituency.

A village existed here at least as early as Saxon times and there is evidence of human settlement in the area from Roman times and the Bronze Age.[1]

The size of the village is 4.04 square kilometres (1.56 sq mi)[2] and the population of the village at the time of the 2001 UK census was 2076.[3] However, the population is likely to increase over the coming years as the process of suburbanisation is taking place. Increased development in the area in the form of new houses and improved transport links such as the Norwich South Bypass has resulted in increased activity in the area. With the city of Norwich nearby, the village has become an ideal spot for commuters to reside.

Buildings[edit | edit source]

St. Peter's Church, Cringleford is the Anglican parish church. Of Anglo-Saxon origins, it was constructed somewhere between 950 and 1100 A.D.[4] There are also a small school for pupils between the ages of 4 and 12, the Cringleford Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School (usually abbreviated to Cringleford School)[5] and a surgery whose recent refurbishment and extension was completed in April 2010.[6]

Sports[edit | edit source]

Cringleford is also the home of Cringleford Lodge Cricket Club.
