Norfolk Reports

Swaffham, Norfolk

Review of Swaffham by Bill Davis on May 7th, 2009
We are actually newcomers to Swaffham. We arrived in 1996 from Hertfordshire.Checking the place out on the internet, it is steeped in history.So many places of interest in a very small radius.As with most places in this country it can be too close to register.I am not sure the locals appreciate what they have on their door step.I could be wrong, of course. My son-in -law, when visiting us and we are in town passing little alleyways and such says 'What is down there?' He is disgusted if I say I don't know! The church of St Peter and St Paul can fill a good few hours. And that ceiling! I have to say it had declined some in the last few years.Too many shops have closed and we have too many of the wrong kind of shop.I am in constant touch by e-mail to friends in New Zealand and they love the place, even though they have not been here.Kingdom did help to spread the word and put the town in peoples minds.I love telling people where I live and have grown quite protective of the place.

Review of Swaffham by sadie white on April 22nd, 2009
i am 13 years old i go to hamond high school which is in swaffham so i do visit it regally. I do not like Swaffham that much mainly because what types of shops it has like for example ok im not mean or nothing but swaffham does have to many charity shops in it. there is 2 chemist which is good because it sells a verity of products like make-up food drink medicines ect i like that but now woolworths has gone and turning into iceland this now mean there is another supermarcket and swaffham already has netto and waitrose. meaning there is less shops to buy other stuff like books magazines sweets ect thank you for listening

Review of Swaffham by Roger Goodchild on August 27th, 2006
Visited Swaffam for the first time in August 2006. A beautiful market town with a newly refurbished market place. Excellent FREE parking in the town centre with superb facilities. The cleanliness and lack of litter was particularly noticeable. Visiting the Market Cross 17th Century inn is a must. Whilst there a visit to the ECOCENTRE is well recommended, and if you have the stamina climb the 305 steps or so inside the ENERCON 66 wind turbine to the viewing gallery (approx 98 metres above the ground)- now you really can see Norfolk!! This is the only wind turbine you can ascend in the UK! The guided tour by James was excellent as is his knowledge of the turbine. We shall definately return and this time visit the ICENI village close by.
