BURGH PARVA, is a decayed parish, 4 miles S.S.W. of Holt, which, from time immemorial, has been united with Melton Constable. It contains only Burgh Hall, and about 400 acres of land, the property of Lord Hastings, and occupied by Fras. L'Estrange Astley, Esq. The Church has been dilapidated many centuries, but some traces of it are still to be seen near the hall.
