Welcome to Brisley


Brisley is a rural civil parish in the Breckland District of the English county of Norfolk; with a population of just over 250.

Brisley is served by St Bartholomew's Church, a medieval building, with a welcome for all.

The Village Hall has been recently updated. As well as holding regular events, including the Village Cinema, the hall is available to hire for private functions.

Brisley Green is an area of registered common land, given to the Parish by the late Canon Dodson in 1993. It is one of the largest privately owned, lowland, grazing commons, some 58.64 hectares, in the UK.

Brisley has a long association with cricket. The club is sited on the Green, opposite the pub, and has a flourishing membership.


The local pub, The Bell, is an award winning 17th century village inn, with an excellent reputation. Well worth a visit, although booking is advised.

The village website has more information about local facilities:

The Parish Council


The Parish Council is made up of seven members who all live in or near to Brisley and represent the village on various matters.  


We are effectively the third tier of local government, the other two being Norfolk County Council and Breckland District Council.

The Parish Council usually meet in the Village Hall at 7.00 pm on the first Wednesday of every month, with the exception of January, April and August.

Members of the public are very welcome to attend and are able to speak during the open forum, which is part of every meeting.


The Council are always keen to hear from anyone with ideas on how to improve local facilities.
