North Walsham

The busy market town of North Walsham is dominated by the partially ruined tower of St Nicholas Church.

Like nearby Worstead, North Walsham grew considerably in the Middle Ages and its wealth came from the wool trade with the arrival of Flemish weavers in the 14th century. Walsham cloth was a lightweight, summer-use cloth compared to Worstead cloth.

Between 1768 and 1771, English naval hero Horatio Nelson was educated at Paston Grammar School (now Paston College) which was founded by Sir William Paston in 1606. Nearby Bacton Woods dates back to Saxon times and is an excellent place for rambling, cycling, horse riding, wildlife watching and cross-country running. The town’s close proximity to both the Norfolk Coast and Norfolk Broads make it a good base for a holiday. The Norfolk Motorcycle Museum is adjacent to the station.
