Cranwich is a village and civil parish in the English county of Norfolk, about 2 miles (3.2 km) north west of Mundford. It covers an area of 7.38 km2 (2.85 sq mi) and had a population of 60 in 24 households at the 2001 census.[1] The population remained less than 100 at the 2011 Census and was included in the civil parish of Ickburgh. For the purposes of local government, it falls within the district of Breckland.

Its church, St Mary's, is one of 124 existing round-tower churches in Norfolk.

The village is referenced in the film Lesbian Vampire Killers, but is renamed "Cragwich", but still remains in the general Norfolk area.
