GLANDFORD is a parish about 1 miles south-east from Blakeney and 3 north-west from Holt station in the Northern division of the county, Holt hundred, and county court district, Erpingham union, rural deanery of Holt and archdeaconry and diocese of Norwich. The surface is undulating and the higher grounds command extensive views over the German Ocean: the village is situated in a well-wooded vale, watered by the river Glaven, from which it derives its name; on the river a flour mill, near which is found a peculiar species of rush, only known to grow in two other places in the kingdom. The church of St. Martin has many years been dilapidated and the tower an ivy-clad ruin; the chancel was rebuilt in 1840, and fitted up for the performance of divine service. The register dates from the year 1655. The living is a rectory, united, with the rectory of Blakeney and the vicarage of Little Langham, united value 566, in the gift of Lord Calthorpe and held from 1858 by the Rev. Richard Henry Tillard M.A. of St. John's College, Cambridge. The tithes were commuted for a rent-charge of 97; there is a glebe of about 9 acres. Sir Alfred Jodrell bart. is lord of the manor and owner of the parish. The soil is light; subsoil, gravel. The crops are on the four-course system. The parish comprises 304 acres, but the parish of Bayfield is united with it for the support of the poor; the rateable value of Glandford and Bayfield is 1,573; the populatin in 1881 was 106.——Letters through Dereham.
