Downham Market Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Norfolk...

Once a market town based around the sale of horses, Downham Market has both history and elegance and lies on the edge of the Fens.

Lord Nelson went to school here as a child and in the centre of the town is a neo-Gothic clock tower dating to 1878.

The Church of St Edmund has a spire and a Gothic crucifix.

Eight miles from here is magnificent Oxburgh Hall, a 15th century moated mansion, while in the nearby village of Denver is a tower windmill, a 13th century church and a cast iron clock tower with a glass chandelier.
