COLVESTON, a small parish, 2 miles N. of Mundford, and 8½ miles S. by W. of Swaffham, has only 59 inhabitants, and 861 acres of land, all the property and manor of W.A.T. Amhurst, Esq., of Didlington, but formerly belonging to Lord Berners, one of whose family built Colveston Hall, which is now occupied by labourers.
The Church (Virgin Mary) was dilapidated at an early period, and not a vestige of it now remains. The rectory is consolidated with Didlington.
