Pattesley is a very small village in the English county of Norfolk. It is located about one mile south of the village of Oxwick and consists of a few scattered houses. The population is included in the civil parish of Colkirk.
Pattesley was mentioned on the Domesday Book survey. During Elizabethian times, it was briefly donated to Caius College by Sir Christopher Heydon. The college exchanged the manor with Sir Roger Townshend of Raynham shortly after.
The village once supported a church consecrated to Saint John the Baptist though this is recorded as only a remnant as early as 1831 and appears to have been abandoned on the 16th Century, according to some sources. The church was later incorporated into a farmhouse, known as Pattesley House or Pattesley Cottage, now a Grade II* listed building
Its recorded population in 1861 was only 10 people.
Its name is used by the singing group "The Pattesley Singers", who rehearse in nearby Colkirk.
