Potter Heigham is a village on the River Thurne in the county of Norfolk. It is situated 12 miles  north-east of the city of Norwich on the A149 road, and within the Broads.

The village is a well known destination for holidays on the river, with many holiday bungalows on the riverbank, a number of boat hiring businesses, and associated tourist shops, cafes, and pubs. Part of the parish is in the Broads National Park; there are also two national nature reserves and the ‘Weavers Way’ long distance footpath also passes through the village. The village is known for its mediaeval bridge and the Church of St Nicholas, which dates from the 12th Century.

The civil parish has about 500 houses in an area of 4.01 sq miles. For the purposes of local government, the parish falls within the district of North Norfolk and the county of Norfolk.

As in other broadland villages, the areas adjacent to the river fall under the administration of the Broads Authority.

Potter Heigham Parish Council consists of 11 members, elected every four years. It is responsible for many things including:

  • Monitoring and reporting general tidiness of the village.
  • Expressing views and recommendations on local Planning Applications.
  • Public Seating/Benches.
  • Dog Litter Bins.
  • Reporting Footpath and Highway issues to Norfolk County Council
