According to Vol. 2 of "A General History of Norfolk" printed by John Stacy in 1829. "Hoe belonged to the abbey of Ely, founded by St. Audrey or Etheldra, and was held by Ralph son of Ivo, of the abbot, and afterwards by the king, as appears from Domesday book; to which belonged a chapel with nave, a north and south aisle, a square tower, and three bells. The parish was inclosed in 1811".
The Mid-Norfolk Railway has extended its heritage services to Hoe and Worthing. The railway has produced plans for the construction of a platform at Hoe, although at present it is focusing on extending the line to County School railway station, rather than establishing the new platform at Hoe.
