Little is said about this village of church at Hindolveston, so taken from the "a church near you" site, this short extract. The church of St George the Martyr Hindolveston was built in the early 1930's as a replacement for the original church which fell down in 1892, the ruins of the old church are in the churchyard which is located outside the village and is still used for burials. The village of Hindolveston itself is a rural village with ancient Viking roots. Hindolveston is a very lively and friendly village with a close knit and friendly community.  The parish is part of the United Benefice of Briston, Burgh Parva, Hindolveston and Melton Constable.
The ruin of Hindolveston, Saint George the Martyr church, On August 6th 1892, there was in the village of Hindolveston a loud sound like thunder. Only in a short time the result was found, it was the church of Saint George. The massive tower of the church had fallen and had demolished a large part of the church. Three months previously the signs were there, no-one expected though what might happen. Messent wrote: near Melton Constable. A new church has recently been completed in place of the ruined one mentioned. The materials are brick and flint and a certain amount of re-used materials from the old church. The result is a very pleasing modern church. Mr A.G. Berry, F.R.I.B.A. of Norwich was the architect.
