Woodbastwick is a village and civil parish in the English county of Norfolk. It is located on the River Bure between Cockshoot Broad and Salhouse Broad, within The Broads National Park and close to Bure Marshes NNR (National Nature Reserve). The city of Norwich lies 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) to the south-east.[1]

The village name relates to bast, a pliable substance found under the bark of the lime tree. Danish and Saxon invaders used bast as a form of binding to tie leggings and other items. As a consequence, Woodbastwick's village sign shows two invaders tying their leggings.

Woodbastwick is an attractive village with thatched houses set around a village green, and the church of St Fabian & St Sebastian, also thatched. The Woodforde Broadland Brewery is located in the village and produces cask ales such as Wherry Bitter, Nelson's Revenge, Norfolk Nog and Headcracker.

The civil parish has an area of 19.04 km2 (7.35 sq mi) and in the 2001 census had a population of 362 in 157 households. For the purposes of local government, the parish falls within the district of Broadland.[2]
