WELCOME TO BRUNDALL LOCAL
Brundall in Norfolk is a large Broadland
village about seven miles east of Norwich off the road
to Yarmouth. It is on the River Yare and has two
railway stations. The population was a mere 63 in
1836 but once Norfolk’s first railway was opened in 1844
it grew over the years to the approximately 5,000 that
it is today. Click on 'Brundall Village' to
find out more.
Brundall Local History Group usually meets on
the third Thursday of the month in The Memorial Hall for
a talk. See ‘Meetings’ for details. We
charge £2.50 for the evening which includes tea or
coffee and a biscuit, or you can pay an annual
subscription of £12 and become a member. Members
are admitted free to the talks and also receive
quarterly newsletters. Both visitors and new
members are always very welcome.
We aim to discover as much as we can about
Brundall’s history, to record it, and to share it. If
you think you may have information or photographs that
we don’t, we’d love to hear from you. And if you have
any queries for us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
and we'll do our best to help.
