Taverham & Thorpe Marriott

Taverham is situated six miles from the centre of Norwich on the north bank of the River Wensum.

Taverham ChurchThe village boasts a fine parish church, built mainly of flint with corner dressings of freestone or sandstone. Dating probably from Saxon times, it is dedicated to St Edmund, King and Martyr, who was the King of East Anglia from 855 to 870 AD.

Taverham Hall was built by the Rev. J. Nathaniel Micklethwait in 1859, after the previous building was destroyed by fire. In 1919, when the estate was broken up into over 90 lots, it then became a school, which it remains today.

Until 1899, Taverham had a very unusual paper-mill. Today only the remains of the sluices can be seen but, in its hey-day, the paper-mill made paper of a very high quality. It was used for printing bank notes, bibles, the Oxford Dictionary and several daily newspapers including ‘The Times’.

Up until the 1960s and 1970s the houses were scattered about the village, but over recent years Taverham’s population has grown considerably, becoming a very desirable area. In 1951 its population was around 700 and in 1990 this rose to over 6,000, which did not include Thorpe Marriot.

Taverham Church at NightMarriots Way cycle track leads to the city and is a popular cycle route for those who work in the city or those who are just cycling for pleasure.

Taverham has a village hall with good sports facilities, library, doctors' surgery, veterinary practice, public house and a good selection of shops.
