The place-name 'Rishangles' is first attested in the Domesday Book of 1086, where it appears as Risangra. The name means 'brushwood slope', the second element being related to the word 'hanger' meaning 'hanging wood'.
Located around seven miles south of Diss, in 2005 its population was 80. At the 2011 the population was included in the civil parish of Bedingfield. Despite its small population the village is at one time believed to have been home to three churches. Following the closure of both the Methodist church and the Grade II* listed Parish church, St Margaret's, only the Baptist Church remains open.
