SCOULTON Local archaeological studies have shown findings in the village of Scoulton dating back to Palaeolithic times, with further discoveries from the Bronze Age, Roman and Saxon periods; as well as three mentions of 'Skultuna' in the Domesday Book. Within the village there is an active Village Hall and also the Church of the Holy Trinity; with the added benefit of nearby proximity to the well served market town of Hingham (2.5 miles), where grand Georgian architecture surrounds the market place and village green.
It was in the 18th century when the socialites of high society built and took residence in Hingham that it became fashionably known as "little London". The many and varied local shops have the special character of a small market town but are up-to-date in what they provide. Despite the influence and attractions of neighbouring Norwich, an active and independent town life continues to thrive and grow.
Amenities include a family butcher, The White Hart Hotel gastropub, caf鬠library, primary school, excellent health centre, doctors surgery and frequent bus services providing access to the surrounding villages and towns of Wymondham, Attleborough, Watton, Dereham and Norwich.
