HORSHAM ST. FAITH, and NEWTON ST. FAITH, two villages forming one parish, commonly called St. Faith's, are situated on the main road between Norwich and Aylsham, distant about 5 miles N.W. of the former, and 7 S. of the latter. Horsham, the largest village of the two, is pleasantly seated above a small stream, and is much celebrated for its large annual fair, commencing October 12th, and continuing 3 weeks, to which vast numbers of cattle, from the surrounding country and from Scotland, are sent for sale. The parish comprises an area of about 2500 acres, and the population in 1841 was 1307. Post Office, at James Rice's. Letters delivered 7 a.m. and despatched to Norwich and all parts at 6.30 p.m.
