Great Hautbois is about 8 miles NNE of Norwich and 6 miles SE of Aylsham.

Great Hautbois once had a castle, parish church and a small settlement of houses. All that remains are the ruins of the church and a couple of farms. The parish has been absorbed into Coltishall. The remains of the church are about ¾ mile north of Coltishall to the left of the Lamas Road.

From Norwich: Follow the B1150 North, through Catton and Crostwick. Go over the River Bure at Horstead and you're in Coltishall. What is left of Great Hautbois is about ¾ mile north along the Lamas Road
