The villages name means 'Wulfhere's farm/settlement'.
Wolferton is best known as the location of Wolferton railway station. The station was opened in 1862 after Queen Victoria had purchased the site of Sandringham House as a Norfolk retreat. The station contained a set of elegant reception rooms, where the several generations of the royal family and their visitors would wait for transportation to Sandringham House. The 13th-century St Peter's Church was damaged by fire in the fifteenth century, and restored in the 19th century by Arthur Blomfield. It retains its medieval parclose screens.
The first episode of the Netflix series The Crown is called "Wolferton Splash" because part of it takes place on a marsh duck shooting expedition from Sandringham House on which the king (Elizabeth's father) invites newly married Prince Philip.
