According to 19th-century directories, Nowhere or No-Where is a marshy area by the River Bure where the villagers of Acle, Norfolk had salt-pans to produce salt for food preservation, etc. Originally an extra-parochial liberty, it was formally incorporated into Acle parish in 1862 and the name no longer appears in maps and gazetteers. In 1861 there were four inhabited houses and 16 people.
- Page at GenUKI quoting directories such as:
- Acle (Det. No. 2) and Acle (Det. No. 3), the Ordnance Survey map of 1890 showing two detachments of Acle parish. Either or both may well be parts of Nowhere.
