Beeston is a village in the county of Norfolk, England, in the civil parish of Beeston with Bittering , west of East Dereham and south of Fakenham. It may also be known as Beeston All Saints or Beeston-next-Mileham to distinguish it from the three other villages in Norfolk named Beeston.

Sir William Calthorpe made presentations to the rectory of Beeston in 1460, 1481, and 1492.[1]

Keith Skipper, the Eastern Daily Press journalist and champion of the Norfolk dialect, was born in the village.

Beeston won EDP's Village of the Year.[citation needed]
