Our local village, Briston


One of the largest villages in Norfolk, Briston is a charming village adjacent to the village of Melton Constable, once famous for its busy railway station (since closed).

Briston has a large village green, which features a travelling fairground and Summer Fete once a year.  The Recreation Ground at the Briston Pavilion has an enclosed Children’s playing area, football pitches and tennis courts.
