BURGH PARVA, 4 miles S.S.W. of Holt, is a decayed parish, which, from time immemorial, has been united with Melton-Constable. It contains only Burgh Hall and 400 acres of land belonging to Lord Hastings, and occupied by Fras. L'Estrange Astley, Esq.
The CHURCH was dilapidated many centuries ago; but some traces of it still remain near the hall.
