Welcome to Mattishall

Mattishall is situated in the very heart of Norfolk, just 11 miles west of Norwich. It is the largest village in Breckland and one of the largest villages in Norfolk.


There are many facilities that serve this thriving and active community.  Among these include: a primary school, doctors’ surgery, several churches, many clubs and societies, sports facilities, a variety of local shops, a café, an enterprise and training centre with gym and restaurant, and a pub.

The Parish Council

The Parish Council is made up of 9 councillors who represent the village on various matters.  We are one of three tiers of local government: the others being Norfolk County Council and Breckland District Council. 


We meet at 7 pm usually on the first Monday of the month at the Memorial Hall, South Green, Mattishall but due to the current situation with COVID-19 we are meeting virtually. Please see the agenda for joining details.  The public is very welcome to attend our meetings. 

We're responsible for:

  • The upkeep of the Burgh Lane Cemetery, Memorial Garden and All Saints Churchyard

  • All Saints Church clock

  • The children’s play area 

  • The allotments

  • The upkeep of the Village Green

  • Bus shelters and seating

  • Litter bins and dog bins

  • Providing general maintenance around the village

  • The Friday night youth club

Our next meeting will be held on Monday 6th December 2021 at 7 pm at the Memorial Hall.

December 21

Hopkins and Moore developers are due to commence works on site next Monday 20th September.

Initially the site will be handed over to groundworkers for an initial period to provide the infrastructure before the Hopkins & Moore team can take over. The groundworkers are JMS Contractors who are based just outside Norwich.

We need your help!

The Parish Council have been given the opportunity to provide some suggestions for new road names for the forthcoming new Hopkins and Moore development at Dereham Road, Mattishall. We would welcome all suggestions and will consider the names at our next parish council meeting held on Monday 6th September.


Thanking you in advance

The Mattishall Youth Club will be re-starting on Friday 6 August 2021 at the Memorial Hall from 6.30 pm - 8.30 pm.   It's for ages 10-16 and it's free.  The following session will be held on Friday 20 August and thereafter on Friday evenings from 3 September.

We have two councillor vacancies.  If you are wish to join the Parish Council or are interested in finding what we do, please contact the clerk.  

Openreach and BDUK have announced more rural build locations and Mattishall is included in this list as an exchange-wide project. This means that as part of the natural rollout of FTTP with Norfolk County Council, Openreach will build to the premises fed from the Mattishall Exchange within the next 12 to 18 months.
