28 July, 2019
Town History Walk
Booking Open - places limited
Water Meadows An updated and extended version of last year's event. Starting at 13:30 we will spend a couple of hours looking at the views of our town itself. Exploring some of Dereham's history we also have a peep behind the scenes, beyond what is normally open to the public.

Participants will receive a booklet giving information about all the locations visited, which will be expanded on by our guide for the afternoon. The planned itinerary covers the Railway Station, Dereham Memorial Hall, the Explosives Store(!), St Withburga’s Well and the Bell Tower (including ascending to the bells) ... and more.

One thing won’t change, we will be ending the walk with tea/coffee and cake, this time with our friends at the Bell Tower of St Nicholas Church.

Booking is essential and places are limited to 15.

Cost is £5, which includes concluding refreshments and the booklet. For more details contact Ken Hawkins at: or on 07505 426750.
