Welcome to the Wortham & Burgate Parish Council website. As its name infers the Council represents two parishes.  

Wortham, the larger of the two parishes with an electorate of 566, lies some 3 miles west of Diss on the A143 and  Burgate, a much smaller parish with just 128 electors, adjacent to Wortham just south of the A143.

The most distinctive features in both parishes are the large grassland commons around which the majority of residential properties are situated.  

Please select the link for a brief synopsis of the commons and how we can help to preserve them        Wortham and Burgate Commons

Please select the link for more information about the commons and how the council manages the land -  http://www.naturalengland.org.uk/ourwork/farming/commonland/default.aspx

Wortham and Burgate villages were twinned with Hede-Bazouges in Brittany in 1991.  Please select the link to read more.

The villages are well served by The Manor House Pub, the Wortham Post Office,  Stores & Tea Shop and an excellent primary school.

The Wortham Village Hall and Burgate Church Hall both play host to numerous local clubs and organisations.   Meanwhile the modern sports pavilion provides facitilies for the  Lawn Tennis Club and several Football Clubs.
