A thriving market town, Swaffham sits on the edge of the Breckland heaths close to the wild-woods that is Thetford Forest. The village sign is dedicated to the legendary ‘Pedlar of Swaffham’ who found a treasure under a local tree after undertaking an ill-fated journey to find his fortune in London. The triangular market place was built by the 4th Earl of Oxford in the 18th century and has a domed roof. A museum in the town hall displays many historic artifacts while the 15th century Church of St Peter and St Paul is said to be one of the finest medieval churches in East Anglia. Swaffham Prior has two churches – St Mary’s and St Cyriac’s – in the same churchyard.
