FOULSHAM Foulsham is a typical Norfolk village just off the A1067 Norwich to Fakenham road on a road that goes to and comes from virtually nowhere. The name means "Homestead of the birds". The lovely 14th century 'Church of The Holy Innocent' was burnt severely in a fire in 1770 and was rebuilt with its 15th century tower intact. Foulsham is 11 miles from Dereham with its wide range of shops, schools and facilities. Foulsham is in the Reepham High School catchment area. It's 30 miles from King's Lynn with its direct rail link to Cambridge and London and just 18 miles from Norwich with its rail link to Liverpool Street and Norwich Airport, which is the perfect intercontinental gateway through Schiphol Airport.
