Nordelph is a rural community in low lying Fenland some 4 miles from Downham Market and 9 miles from Wisbech.



The majority of dwellings lie along the banks of the River Well Creek and Pophams Eau and are situated on the High Street which continues into Birchfield Road to the east of the bridge and extends to the B1094 Silt Road and Coronation Avenue to the west. There is a small isolated settlement of houses at Thorpe Terrace and Neatmoor just over a mile from the bridge.

There are four principal roads that run through Nordelph forming an ‘X’ shape with Nordelph bridge at the intersection. Other properties are situated less densely along the A1122 Downham Road/Outwell Road towards Salter’s Lode and towards Outwell.

The Parish covers some outlying and isolated properties. It is bordered by the parishes of Barroway Drove, Upwell, Outwell and Downham West.

The village benefits from a large village hall which is well used for regular and occasional events with a playing field, kitchen, bar area and toilets. There are no shops in Nordelph but a mobile Post Office that visits on a Monday (15:10-15:25), Tuesday (14:50-15:05), Wednesday (14:50-15:05) and Thursday (15:10-15:25) and a mobile library.

The main industry is arable farming. There is a hand car wash on the Outwell Road.  

There are a wide range of age groups making up the population of approximately 350 residents and 200 houses.
