Attleborough’s history can be traced back to Saxon times and, sadly, much of the town was destroyed by fire in 1559. It has a fine example of a medieval church with a Norman tower. The traditional industries of turkey-rearing and brush-making still take place. The turkey on the town sign is said to depict the days when Attleborough turkeys had their feet dipped in tar to withstand the journey along roads to the London markets.
Carnival Week takes place in June, when organisations get together to host an array of activities including an excellent parade of floats.
The town has a good selection of shops, a sports hall, doctors’ surgeries, dentists, opticians, health centre, banks and building societies. There is also a weekly market held on Thursdays.
Education facilities cater for pre-school right through to adult education. Attleborough is twinned with the French town of Nevil les Aubiers and many successful visits have taken place between pupils from each high school.
