Could you imagine if a town like Wymondham had 33 pubs?

It may seem far-fetched for a Norfolk market town to have so many watering holes, but Wymondham actually had that many back in 1622.

Wymondham Heritage Museum opens for its new season on March 6, with a new exhibition on the town's lost pubs.

The display includes photos and stories of these former community hubs, and shows what is currently in their place. Wymondham now boasts just six pubs.

A team of volunteers has also been hard at work improving the museum over the winter break, and the venue has gained a refurbished reception area, wall mural and touchscreen computers to give an interactive look at Wymondham's heritage.
