Welcome
SantonDownham.Org

Welcome to the Santon Downham Village website, where you will find information on the history of the unique village as well as local news and events.

If you're looking for information on the Village Hall, it has its own website.

We set up the website as a resource for people who live in or simply love the village. We started to build the site in February 2004, and it has gone through several iterations - the latest one in January 2008. You can access the old site here. Please be aware these pages are "as found" on the archive - some bits certainly don't work/display as they should.

The site contains information from the 22 villages local history millennium project, sponsored by Forest Heath District Council. This project led to a book and a website. The 22 Villages site has now gone but we have republished most of Santon Downham's content here.

Please note that many of the web pages drawn from the original 22 villages site are somewhat out of date as they were written several years ago - though most relate to village history, which of course still applies.
