Swaffham

Swaffham is a pretty market town with many Georgian buildings scattered around the market place. It is within 40 minutes drive of Norwich, Sandringham, King’s Lynn, Thetford Forest and the coast, and the Norfolk Broads are only about an hour away.
The Butter Cross is an interesting feature and is situated in the market place. It was erected in 1783 AD and comprises eight stone columns and a dome featuring a figure of the Goddess Ceres.

On the town sign the legendary ‘Pedlar of Swaffham’, John Chapman, is depicted. Figures of John and his wife are also carved on a bench end that is within the spectacular parish church.

The local history museum has exhibits dating back to the Stone Age and is well worth a visit.

Swaffham market is held every Saturday and includes livestock and an auction.
