Parish History[edit | edit source]

WENDLING (St. Peter and St. Paul), a parish, in the union of Mitford and Launditch, hundred of Launditch, W. division of Norfolk, 4¼ miles (W.) from East Dereham. [1]


Wendling St Peter and St Paul is an Ancient Parish in the Brisley deanery of the Diocese of Norwich.

The church of St. Peter & Paul was built in approx. 1345. This place is of considerable antiquity. Prior to 1267 an abbey was founded by William de Wendling, in honour of the Blessed Virgin, for Praemonstratensian canons; it was suppressed by a bull of Pope Clement, and in 1528 granted to Cardinal Wolsey for the foundation of his college.
