Fincham is situated in the North West part of Norfolk, on the edge of the flat agricultural Fenlands. Here is an area map and also an interactive map from UK Multimap. It is about 10 miles south of King's Lynn, which is an interesting harbour town on the estuary of the Great Ouse, with many well-preserved historical buildings. Just to the west is Downham Market, an attractive market town.
Fincham is a small village, which is described in this guide book article. The main buildings of interest are
- The Church of St. Martin, a splendid building in Perpendicular style.
- Fincham Hall, the Tudor manor house, standing on the site of earlier halls, which was the home of the Fincham family until 1572
- Talbot Hall, one of the earliest manors of the village
- Playters Hall, on the site of the mediaeval manor of New Hall
Fincham used to have several pubs, but only one remains.
Fincham Parish Council has its own website, finchamparishcouncil.com.
There are no Finchams living in the village these days, but Fincham visitors receive a friendly welcome.
