This picture submitted by John Mc Skimming is an aerial view of St Margarets and Hope Springs taken in 1964 at a time when the main A47 ran through Scarning. Both properties have since been extended and the main access to the latter property is now from Dereham Road rather than Grange Road.



This picture of the village in the 1950s has been submitted by Tim Farnham, for more information about the village click on the picture.


Here is a reproduction of the Tithe map of Scarning which would have been prepared in the 1830's. Tithes were paid to the church to support the rector of the parish and were originally paid in kind. Following the Tithe Commutation Act of 1836 rent which varied according to the price of corn was payable. Surveys were made and the value of each field was assessed. Maps were prepared and each field was given a reference number.

Note that the route of the forthcoming railway (1845-7) is denoted by 'Lynn and Dereham railway as set out by flags'tithe map
