Latest reviews | Events in Trunch | 10 Places to Stay

Two miles inland from Mundesley, Trunch is well and truly off the beaten track, reached via back-roads off the B1145, itself not exactly the busiest road in the county. It was once probably a trading centre though, the name Trunch being a corruption of a Danish word denoting a weighing place. In spite of having a population of less than 1,000 Trunch has retained those three ingredients vital to a healthy village: a shop, a pub (The Crown Inn) and a church, St Botolph’s, located by the pub just as it should be. And as is right for a proper Norfolk village the architecture is a real mixture, some Victorian like the imposing Manor House, now a B&B, some Georgian, and some much earlier, with flint and thatch aplenty in evidence. The church has elements from the 14th century, but the majority is from 100 years later. Inside St Botolph’s there is some wonderful woodwork: pew ends with idiosyncratic carvings; a very rare font canopy with delicately carved decoration (one of only four in England); and a spectacular hammer-beam roof complete with wooden angels.
