Lord Nelson

Rear-Admiral Sir Horatio NelsonAnother Local Hero

Tucked a few miles inland from the north Norfolk coast, the tranquil hamlet of Burnham Thorpe is one for the history buffs – it is the birthplace of Horatio Nelson.

Mortally wounded at Trafalgar, Lord Nelson wanted to be buried at All Saints Church, but he ended up in London’s St Pauls. However, the church’s cross and lectern are fashioned from timbers taken from his ship, HMS Victory.

Burnham Thorpe is situated five miles west of Wells Next The Sea, off the A149.

Painting: Rear-Admiral Sir Horatio Nelson, 1800, National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London
