Welcome to East and West Beckham Parish Website
The small parish of East and West Beckham is about three miles south of the coastal town of Sheringham, in north east Norfolk. Beckham is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Bechoam - from the Old English meaning Beocca's ham or homestead. The two villages have a combined population of about 300.
East and West Beckham are situated on the highest part of the Cromer Ridge and in the area of outstanding natural beauty. The sources of both the River Glaven and the River Bure are within the Parish. Our parish has always been involved with agriculture but also home to exciting technical developments prior to World War II.
There are places of interest including listed buildings, RAF West Beckham and the Workhouse.
The Village Hall is shared with our neighbouring village of Bodham. Our small flint Church is built from the ruins of two previous Churches - the mediaeval St Helen in East Beckham and All Saints in West Beckham
