Newton Flotman Norfolk Blacksmiths

The Blacksmiths, Saxlingham Thorpe  

Welcome to the Newton Flotman and Saxlingham Thorpe Heritage Group website


Whether you are a new resident, have lived in the area all your life or moved out and feeling nostalgic, we hope that you find something of interest here.  Please do not hesitate to get in contact - we would love to use your photographs and memories to help build up an archive of life in our villages.

As you explore the website you will see that we need more content to build this online archive please do consider sharing your photos and memories.

We hold village memory events during the year - join us to reminisce over a cup of tea - we can even record you and you could appear here!
Look out for new dates!


NFaST core members meet 2-3 times a year and  host Village Cafe for their Memories events 2-3 times a year too.  Contact Kirsten Remer 01508 471580 for meeting dates or look in the village magazine, Partnership, which can be accessed via  the Newton Flotman Parish Council website 


We hold our village archive at the church and have digital copies of most items. These can be accessed when the church is open but do contact NFaST    beforehand to avoid disappointment as a member may not always be available to help you with your enquiry, but can usually accommodate with prior notice

Highlights..o the site...

This  area is now known as Kings Green, but was known as 'the Heater', due to its shape.  There were allotments here. The old school is in the background. Taken from the A140  north to Norwich.
