Town History Walk
Booking Open - places limited
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
