Fersfield is a village in the English county of Norfolk. It was the home parish of Francis Blomefield (1705-1752), whose History of Norfolk documents the history of much of South Norfolk.
Since 1935 the village forms part of the parish of Bressingham and Fersfield (more commonly just Bressingham).
Fersfield is bounded on the east and south by the village of Bressingham; to the west are South Lopham and North Lopham and to the north Kenninghall. Historically, the parish marked a boundary of the hundred of Diss.
RAF Fersfield is a former World War II airfield located between Fersfield and Winfarthing which was closed after the war and briefly used as a motor racing track before being returned to agricultural use.
