Mileham is a small friendly rural village in mid Norfolk, sitting almost centrally in a triangle formed by Fakenham, Dereham and Swaffham. It covers approximately 4.5 square miles, and has a population of 563 (2011 census).
The village is a linear one, sitting astride the B1145 (the Kings Lynn to Mundesley road) that bisects Mid Norfolk west to east.
The village contains a ruined Norman castle, which is now a nature reserve.
We no longer have a Primary School, as the Council decided to close it on the 31st August 2015. We still have a very good playing field, though, which has recently had new play equipment installed.
Roughly in the centre of the village is a thriving Village Store, which includes a Post Office and a Tea Room.
Our Village Hall sees regular use, and is available for hire.
We also have a fine church, St John the Baptist, with some rare stained glass windows.
Mileham is a 'Conservation Village,' centered on Burwood Hall, the Church and the Castle.
