Schools in Downham Market

Downham Market, a town situated in Norfolk, boasts a rich history dating back to the Dark Ages and is renowned for its picturesque medieval parish church and iconic black and white Victorian clock tower. The town was one of Saxon England's oldest market towns and features a generous amount of heritage architecture, including Carrstone construction, which gave the town its nickname, "The Gingerbread Town." The town's waterfront on the River Great Ouse and its proximity to the Fens has led to a thriving maritime history of carrying local produce to markets and trade across England. Downham Market was also known for its butter market and horse fair. The once vibrant horse trade is now celebrated yearly through historical reenactments. Cultural attractions such as the restored Dennis Windmill and the Discover Downham Heritage Centre further highlight the town's unique identity, offering insights into the region's history, particularly its vital role in draining the Fens.
