Morley Saint Botolph is a small village in the English county of Norfolk. It is situated 4 km south-west of the town of Wymondham and 23 km south-west of the city of Norwich. The village name is normally abbreviated to "Morley St Botolph".

Morley Saint Botolph has a sister village, Morley Saint Peter, although the two are often simply referred to as "Morley (where the population is included)". The names Morley St. Botolph and Morley St. Peter are first attested on the Ordnance Survey map of 1838.[1]

Morley St. Botolph played a small part in the early stages of Kett's rebellion of 1549, when the townspeople of Wymondham attacked and broke down enclosures in the village.
