Wymondham is situated in South Norfolk just a few minutes off the A11. The town is a long established Historic Market Town being one of the largest parishes in the county. A weekly market is held every Friday at the Market Cross and a Farmers markets is usually held on the third Saturday of every month.
The town’s most famous landmark is probably its Twin towered abbey, formerly Wymondham Priory founded in 1107 as a community of Benedictine monks. When the Abbey was dissolved by Henry VIII, the eastern end of the Church was demolished, whilst the western part was retained as the Parish Church, which function it still serves.
The old prison now houses the Citizens Advice Bureau, the British Red Cross, and the award-winning museum run by the Wymondham Heritage Society, with many displays of local history; it has also published ‘Wymondham: History of a Norfolk Market Town’.
