Swardeston is a village (population 540[1]) four miles (6 km) south of Norwich in Norfolk, England, on high ground above the Tas valley.

Contents

[edit] History

One of the earliest mentions of this place is in the Domesday book where it is mentioned amongst the lands given to Roger Bigod [2] by the King. The manor given to Roger[3] included 45 acres of land and two acres of meadow.

Its church, dedicated to St Mary the Virgin, has a 15th century tower, but two arched windows indicate that its origins are Saxon and Norman.

[edit] Notable residents

Swardeston is the birth place of Edith Cavell, whose father, the Reverend Frederick Cavell, was vicar for 45 years.

[edit] Sport

Swardeston's cricket team are currently the 2007 champions of the Gibbs Denley ECB East Anglian Premier League.[4]
