Quidenham is a small rural village and civil parish in the Breckland Norfolk
The place-name 'Quidenham' is first attested in the Doomsday Book of 1086, where it appears as 'Cuidenham', and means 'Cwida's ham or village'. The name 'Cwida' corresponds to the Old High German name 'Quito'.
There is a local tradition that Queen Boudica or Boadicea is buried in Quidenham. Quidenham Hall is now a Camilite nunnery and hospice for sick children.
If anybody would like to expand this series please do. I would just ask that you let Smokeypugs know first so they can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
