TRIMINGHAM is a parish 5 miles south-eaat from Cromer, and 6 north from North Walsham, situated on the sea coast, in the Northern division of the county, hundred of North Erpingham, union of Erpingham, North Walsham county court district, rural deanery of Repps, and archdeaconry of Norfolk and diocese of Norwich. The church of St. John, in the Perpendicular style, is an ancient structure of flint, restored in 1859 through the exertions of the Rev. A. B. Cross, the then rector, who collected the sum of 1,500, the entire cost of the restoration: it consists of chancel, nave, and a low square tower with 1 bell: the carved oak screen which separated the chancel from the nave is much admired by antiquarians. The register dates from the year 1748. The living is a rectory, yearly value 135, in the gift of the Duchy of Lancaser and now (1883) vacant. The parish has been much diminishd by the encroachments of the sea: since 1840 two farmhouses have been washed away: there were several landslips during the year 1868, part of the land bsorbed was glebe. Thomas Fowell Buxton esq. is constructing seven groins or breakwaters along the Trimingham beach at his own expense to prevent the recurrence of encroachments. On a lofty hill in the parish, commanding an extensive view of the sea and surroundign country, are the ruins of an old beacon, Lord Suffield is lord of the manor. The principal landowner is Thomas Fowell Buxton esq. The soil is mixed; subsoil, clay and gravel. The chief crops are wheat, oats and barley. The area is 485 acres of land and 145 of water; rateable value. 814 and the population in 1881 was 194.
