Thurgarton is a village in the North Norfolk district of the English county of Norfolk. It lies 6½ miles north of Aylsham and 5½ miles south-west of Cromer, and was once part of the North Erpingham hundred. It forms part of the civil parish of Aldborough .
All Saints Church
All Saints Church, Thurgarton, is a redundant Anglican church situated in an isolated spot in the north of the parish. Its mediaeval round tower collapsed in 1882 and a vestry was built in its place.
Thurgarton Hall, an eighteenth-century red-brick Georgian house, is situated next to the church and was once home to the Bacon family. It later became part of the Felbrigg Hall estate. A post mill once stood in the vicinity of the church.
Thurgarton House (also known as Thurgarton Old Hall) was built in 1733 for William Spurrell, the first of four generations of Spurrells to serve as Chief Constable of North Erpingham hundred. A Victorian wing and several brick barns were built in the nineteenth century. The house remained in the Spurrell family until 2014.
