Village

Details

Poringland is a village in south Norfolk which lies about 5 miles south of Norwich with a population of just over 3000 people. Its name is believed to derive from 'Poor spring land', because it has poor soil. The village contains many public services such as pubs, a supermarket, estate agents, takeaways, a restaurant and various shops. The church of Poringland All Saints is one of Norfolk's few round tower churches. The village sign, which stands close to the church and the village pond, depicts the artist John Crome, founder of the Norwich School of artists, working on his famous painting 'The Poringland Oak'.
