Cringleford is a parish and village in Norfolk, England on the banks of the River Yare on the outskirts of Norwich. The village is in the South Norfolk local government district and the Norwich South Parliamentary constituency.

A village existed here at least as early as Saxon times[1] and there is evidence of human settlement in the area from Roman times and the Bronze Age.[2]

The size of the village is 4.04 square kilometres (1.56 sq mi)[3] and the population of the village at the time of the 2011 UK census was 2963.[4] The population is likely to increase as a result of the current process of suburbanisation, with new housing development and improved transport links such as the Norwich South Bypass. Lying close to the city of Norwich the village has become popular with commuters.

Buildings[edit]

St. Peter’s Church, Cringleford is the Anglican parish church. Of Anglo-Saxon origins, it was constructed somewhere between 950 and 1100 A.D.[5] There are also a small school for pupils between the ages of 4 and 12, the Cringleford Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School (usually abbreviated to Cringleford School)[6] and a surgery whose recent refurbishment and extension was completed in April 2010.[7]

Sports[edit]

Cringleford Lodge Cricket Club was founded in 2000 after the merger of Cringleford C.C. and Earlham Lodge C.C. Located off Oakfields Road, the facilities represent the traditional village setting for cricket. Currently there are three league teams and a junior setup which are managed by lifelong resident Greg Lochhead.
