Contents

Following the Reform Act 1832 the historic county constituency Norfolk was for the first time split into two, two member, county divisions - East Norfolk and West Norfolk.

The Reform Act 1867 led, the following year, to the county's redistribution into three, two member, county divisions. The three divisions, from the 1868 United Kingdom general election became this one, the North and modified Western division.

The Southern division had its place of election at Norwich. This was the same place of election as the abolished Eastern division. In 1868 the same two MPs who had sat for East Norfolk before its end were re-elected from this constituency.

Under the provisions of the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885, single member constituencies became the norm and greater equalisation in electorate occurred. In Norfolk the three, two member, county divisions were changed to six single member seats. These were this constituency, a revived East Norfolk, Mid Norfolk, North Norfolk, North West Norfolk and South West Norfolk.

The Southern division was very agricultural in character.[citation needed] The largest town was Diss, which had a population of fewer than 4,000 people in 1900.

1868–1885: The Hundreds of Walsham, Blofield, Henstead, Humbleyard, Loddon, Clavering, Diss, Deepwade, Earsham, Guiltcross, Shropham, Taverham, Forhoe, and Mitford.

The seat was formed largely from southern parts of the abolished Eastern Division, with a small part transferred from the Western Division.

1885–1918: The Sessional Divisions of Depwade, Diss, Earsham, Loddon and Clavering, and Swainsthorpe.

The northernmost parts were transferred to the re-established Eastern Division and western parts to the new Mid Division. It bordered Mid Norfolk to the west, the borough constituency of Norwich and East Norfolk to the north, the borough of Great Yarmouth and the Suffolk constituency of Lowestoft to the east and another Suffolk division, Eye, to the south.

1918–1950: The Urban District of Diss, the Rural Districts of Depwade, Forehoe, Henstead, and Wayland, and part of the Rural District of Thetford.

Gained southern areas of the abolished Mid Division and a small area in the east of the South-Western Division. Lost eastern areas, which comprised the Loddon and Clavering Rural District (later renamed the Loddon Rural District), to the Eastern Division.

1950–1974: The Municipal Borough of Thetford, the Urban Districts of Diss and Wymondham, and the Rural Districts of Depwade, Loddon, and Wayland.

These areas combined to produce a somewhat more urban constituency than before. Thetford was transferred from South West Norfolk and the Rural District of Loddon regained from the abolished Eastern Division. The (combined) Rural District of Forehoe and Henstead was transferred to the new County Constituency of Central Norfolk.

1974–1983: The Municipal Borough of Thetford, the Urban Districts of Diss and Wymondham, and the Rural Districts of Depwade, Forehoe and Henstead, Loddon, and Wayland.

Regained the Rural District of Forhoe and Henstead, including Costessey, from Central Norfolk, which was now abolished.

This was the last redistribution before a major reorganisation of local government, which amalgamated many of the smaller local authorities and which was reflected in the 1983 redistribution.

1983–1997: District of South Norfolk.

Thetford and the area comprising the former Rural District of Wayland, including Attleborough, which had been included the District of Breckland, were transferred to the redrawn South West Norfolk constituency.

1997–2010: District of South Norfolk, except the wards of Cringleford and Colney, and New Costessey, which were transferred to Norwich South.

2010–present: District of South Norfolk wards of Beck Vale, Bressingham and Burston, Brooke, Bunwell, Chedgrave and Thurton, Cringleford, Dickleburgh, Diss, Ditchingham and Broome, Earsham, Easton, Forncett, Gillingham, Harleston, Hempnall, Hethersett, Loddon, Mulbarton, Newton Flotman, Old Costessey, Poringland with the Framinghams, Rockland, Roydon, Scole, Stoke Holy Cross, Stratton, Tasburgh, and Thurlton.

Cringleford and Colney (but not New Costessey) transferred back from Norwich South. Seven District of South Norfolk wards, including Wymondham and surrounding areas, transferred to Mid Norfolk.

Notes
  1. A county constituency (for the purposes of election expenses and type of returning officer)
  2. As with all constituencies, the constituency elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election at least every five years. However from 1868-85 the constituency elected two members (see history)
  3. Where the hustings stood, at which nominations were made, votes cast before the introduction of multiple polling districts in county constituencies and the result was declared

SourcesHistory EditFollowing the Reform Act 1832 the historic county constituency Norfolk was for the first time split into two two member county divisions East Norfolk and West Norfolk The Reform Act 1867 led the following year to the county s redistribution into three two member county divisions The three divisions from the 1868 United Kingdom general election became this one the North and modified Western division The Southern division had its place of election n 3 at Norwich This was the same place of election as the abolished Eastern division In 1868 the same two MPs who had sat for East Norfolk before its end were re elected from this constituency Under the provisions of the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 single member constituencies became the norm and greater equalisation in electorate occurred In Norfolk the three two member county divisions were changed to six single member seats These were this constituency a revived East Norfolk Mid Norfolk North Norfolk North West Norfolk and South West Norfolk The Southern division was very agricultural in character citation needed The largest town was Diss which had a population of fewer than 4 000 people in 1900 Boundaries

largely from southern parts of the abolished Eastern Division with a small part transferred from the Western Division 1885 1918 The Sessional Divisions of Depwade Diss Earsham Loddon and Clavering and Swainsthorpe 4 The northernmost parts were transferred to the re established Eastern Division and western parts to the new Mid Division It bordered Mid Norfolk to the west the borough constituency of

Thetford the Urban Districts of Diss and Wymondham and the Rural Districts of Depwade Loddon and Wayland 5 These areas combined to produce a somewhat more urban constituency than before Thetford was transferred from South West Norfolk and the Rural District of Loddon regained from the abolished Eastern Division The combined Rural District of Forehoe and Henstead was transferred to the new County Constituency of Central Norfolk 1974 1983 The Municipal Borough of Thetford the Urban Districts of Diss and Wymondham and the Rural Districts of Depwade Forehoe and Henstead Loddon and Wayland 5
