Wymondham is a historic market town situated just outside of Norwich on the A11. It is known for its long-standing farmers’ market, 900-year-old Wymondham Abbey and rich history, including the 1549 Kett’s Rebellion. Today, it is home to a thriving independent high street, as well as several high-tech businesses on its outskirts.

Families took a step back in time at a town's fun day celebrating the 470th anniversary of Kett's rebellion.
