Your Town | Holt
Modern day Holt was shaped in 1708 when a fire destroyed most of the medieval town, and saw it replaced by the Georgian street scene that is part of its charm today.
Its famous independent school Gresham’s dates back even further to 1555, and boasts former pupils ranging from composer Benjamin Britten to bagless vacuum cleaner inventor Sir James Dyson
The town is a Mecca for shoppers due to its range of independent traders including department store Bakers and Larners.
On its doorstep is Holt Country Park and one end of the North Norfolk Railway heritage railway line.
