Hempstead is a small village and civil parish situated some 2½ miles southeast of Holt and 11 miles west of Cromer.
In 2011, the census recorded a population of 177.
The majority of buildings are built of traditional flint, Norfolk red brick and pantiles.
Although the village pub, forge, school and post office have long gone, a well cared for church and a thriving village hall
are at the centre of the village.
The name Hempstead probably derives from Old English,
meaning
'the hemp place' or 'place where hemp is grown'.
