I am a professional North Walsham photographer priding a range of services in the town. North Walsham is an historic market town about 15 miles north of Norwich and about 8 miles south of Cromer. The town is on the the Bittern Line, a railway line that operates between Norwich and Sheringham.
The weaving of cloth brought prosperity to the town as from the 12th century. Walsham became known as a light weight cloth for summer wear and the neighbouring settlement of Worstead gave its name to a heavier cloth.

Market Cross in North Walsham
North Walsham’s town centre has a beautiful looking market cross pictured below.
Between the market cross and Waterloo House pictured below is a fish and chip shop and a sweet shop. I can highly recommend both. During my visit many people were siting on the wall of the market cross or on seating nearby eating their fish and chips.
The sweet shop is also a real treat. Here you step back in time and can buy traditional sweets in jars that are weighed and wrapped in white paper bags, just like in the 1960’s. I tried the chocolate ginger and can’t wait to go back to buy some more.
North Walsham Church
North Walsham’s church of St Nicholas is one of the UK’s largest parish churches. It had the second tallest steeple in Norfolk until it collapsed in 1724. As you can see in the image below the tower was never rebuilt. The church dominates the town centre and the lovely grounds are a nice place to sit.
