Ovington Parish

Ovington is a small village situated in the Breckland area of Norfolk, approximately I mile north of the market town of Watton. It contains 43 properties lived in by 200 people.

The village has grown slowly, with major additions being the Crescent in 1939-1945 and the Church Road houses in the early 1970s.

In spite of its small size, the village has several active social organisations. The Village Hall is used for many activities. The hall may be hired for functions.

And the Bends!

The famous Ovington bends are also in the Parish.

This section of road has been carefully designed to slow all traffic down to 30 mph, or less and in the current economic climate it is unlikely that the bends will be abolished!
