New Buckenham: the history of a market town
This is a transcript of a lecture given to the Norfolk Archaeological & Historical Research Group by Elizabeth Rutledge in 2018.  New Buckenham is described from its inception around 1146, immediately after the establishment of William d’Albini’s new castle, to the town’s blossoming in the mid- 16th century and its continuing role as a centre for trade. The profusion of traders is no longer present but the village retains a clear identity some 800 years later. Please click on the button to download the article in PDF.
