New Book – Images of Wymondham

This book is a selection of images of Wymondham which is a historic market town in Norfolk with the distinctive twin towers of its Abbey providing a sight which dominates the countryside around. Inside the abbey has a magnificent golden altar screen designed by Sir Ninian Comper which has been described as ‘sumptuous’, and ‘one of the most outstanding altar screens in Europe’.

In 1549 Robert Kett, a landowner here, became the leader of a rebellion which became known as ‘Ketts Revolt’ which is depicted on the town sign.

Wymondham has a variety of buildings including the Market Cross, the Green Dragon, Chapel of St. Thomas a Becket, and the Abbey which remains a centre of Christian worship as it has been for centuries welcoming visitors to Wymondham from around the world.
