Themelthorpe, Saint Andrew's Church, Themelthorpe, Possibly Thymel's or thymli's hamlet. Olde English Thymel or Old Norse Thymli's + thorpe (hamlet, secondary settlement) The first element are the names which are possibly derived from the Olde English word for Thimble of the Old Norse word for Thumb.
Themelthorpe church for me at the time of year I visited was an up and down the road looking for it! I used a Sat-Nav and still no success, it actually took asking a passing car where i might find this church. Find it I did, just, the trees were overgrown, the church sign set at an angle that surely the footfall to this church is low. However, on walking the long path (freshly cut) I found the church OPEN. This cheered me up immensely. And what a beautiful church it is. Unable to have much of a gathering because of lack of regular car parking, its a wonder it is not redundant. It is a nice church, all of its style from the day it was built kept, its a church that is not pretending. I missed so much according to the leaflet, I will be back. Themelthorpe, Saint Andrew's Church, near Reepham, square west tower, 1 bell, nave, chancel and south porch. This church is mainly late 13th century with some later insertions. The top of this tower has been rebuilt. The nave and chancel are continuous under one roof.
