Bodham Village

Bodham is a small village near the North Norfolk Coast on the main road (A148) between Holt and Cromer.
The Village has much to be proud of with lots going on for villagers and visitors to enjoy.


Bodham has an entry in the Domesday Book of 1085. In the great book Bodham is recorded by the names Bod(en)ham, and Botham. The main landholders Hugh de Montfort and Walter Giffard.

The old village sign showed a representation of a medieval tax collector going about his employment. The tax collector’s name was Boda and is mentioned in the Domesday Book, which confirms his existence and the fact that he lived there. Bodham means “Boda’s Village”.

We have had many new properties built in the village over the last few years, but the village still retains a small village atmosphere.
