Welcome to our web site!

Ovington is a small village situated in the Breckland area of Norfolk, approximately I mile north of the market town of Watton. It contains 43 properties lived in by 200 people. In spite of its small size, it is a very active village and even has an allotment site as well.

Most activities are situated around the Village Hall and the Church. Also located in this area the bottle and clothing banks to cater for local recycling. We hope you enjoy finding out about Ovington and please feel free to come and take part in our activities.

Ovington Village Hall is located at the north end of Church Road..


Welcome to 2015!

Will it be another exciting year for the village? We achieved a lot last year although some of our projects still need finishing - see below.

With the opening of the A11 as a dual carriage way, Ovington is left with the worse piece of "A" road in the country - The notorious Ovington Bends! In conjuction with the crossroads this is a very accident prone stretch of road. Plans were drawn up in the early  '90s to change this piece of road at a cost of £2.4 million, which now seems cheap.

Accisent at the cross roads
Another accident -  a van went over the crossroads without stopping,
hitting a car. The van ended up in the field on Saham Road. The
Air Ambulance had to be called.

Foot path news update! ( The Trod!)

Highways are still in the process of finishing this project and will add a proper walking surface sometime in 2015.

We now own a Phone Box!

The village is now the proud owner of an ex-BT phone box. This was bought primarily to house the Defribrillator equipment purchased by the Village Hall. Further details of this will be given on this equipment very soon.
