SOUTHREPPS Southrepps is a lovely rustic village set two miles inland from the sea and lying half way between North Walsham to the east and Cromer to the west. The village is in two halves (Upper Southrepps and Lower Southrepps) - for reasons unknown but probably to do with the Black Death - and is separated by a mile of farmland. As one of the larger of North Norfolk villages it is well served with one shop, post office, one pub (and another on its border), a thriving primary school, a very large 15th century church (with a tower that dominates the local landscape). It has a modern village hall, which houses many different functions and a social club, located in Lower Street.
