Deopham is a village in Norfolk, England within the civil parish of Deopham and Hackford. It is close to the old RAF airfield of Deopham Green and the tower of its parish church is one of the tallest in the county of Norfolk.

In 1935 Deopham absorbed the neighbouring parish of Hackford near Wymondham. The enlarged parish continued to be named Deopham for a while, but when it became part of the South Norfolk District in 1974 the parish was renamed Deopham and Hackford.
