Norfolk's Industrial Heritage

It comes as a surprise to many visitors – and not a few Norfolk residents – to discover that a green and rural coastal county was once the heartland of key British industries. Arguably the most important and profitable trade predated the Industrial Revolution. Between the 11th and 16th centuries many Flemish weavers and textile workers crossed the North Sea from Flanders to establish themselves in Norfolk. The export of high-quality East Anglian wool had slowed, so many weavers decided to shift their business to the source.

Holt : Fine Georgian Town

Holt is unlike any other Norfolk town. If you are strolling through its busy streets on any weekend in the year, the first thing you will notice is that outside the big banks, it is hard to find a national chain’s shopfront in Holt, and the town is all the better for it. There is no WH Smith, no JD Wetherspoons, no Next, no Marks and Spencer – and even the supermarket (Budgens) has now been bought up by Bakers and Larners of Holt which has affectionately been dubbed the Harrods of Norfolk. Indeed you are more likely to see a member of the Royal family, an ex Prime-minister or A list celebrity strolling around this fine Georgian Town than someone walking around with a bag promoting a national chain.

Now the probability is that you will pass it by, noticing perhaps just the sign to Dereham (also known as East Dereham) . Those who live there know it as Dereham, a reference to the fact that in bygone times deer roamed the nearby woods and forests.

Wroxham & Hoveton

What’s in a name? Wroxham is not really Wroxham, nor is it really a town. But when you include Hoveton, which is situated where most people think is Wroxham, then it becomes just about big enough to become a town. But that’s only because of the several retail outlets of the legendary Roys of Wroxham, which is actually located in the dead centre of Hoveton. Confused? Well at least the old British Rail got it right when it called the railway station ‘Hoveton and Wroxham’, one of the few towns in Norfolk actually still to have a train service. An explanation, while necessary, is simple. The town is bisected by the upper reaches of the attractive river Bure, and a narrow bridge separates Hoveton on the north side from the…
