Wighton is located in the beautiful North Norfolk countryside and is the home of 5 working farms, one of these produces Mrs. Temples’ cheese. On the first May Bank Holiday we hold our famous Annual Scarecrow and “Crank-up” weekend and in December there is a Christmas Pantomime written and performed by the talented Wighton Players and Friends.
It is also recognised as an important hub for cyclists because it marks the crossroads for the national cycle route number 1, a 3,700 mile stretch from Dover to the Shetland Islands and regional route number 30 between Cromer and Great Yarmouth, resulting in a steady stream of cyclists throughout the year. Wighton is also very popular with walkers and also holiday home owners who come to enjoy the tranquility and feeling of community that thrives in the village.
The longest narrow gauge steam railway in the world runs through Wighton, starting in Wells next the Sea and terminating in Little Walsingham.
In addition to our beautiful All Saints Church, celebrating its 600th anniversary in 2017, we have a Methodist Chapel, Village Hall behind which is a large playing field and play area, an Art Gallery, 2 Guest Houses, a B and B, 4 Caravan Club sites and a Public House.
