Those looking at property for sale in Dereham will probably be aware of the stunning, remote countryside that the town is set in. The Norfolk countryside is well renowned for having some of the prettiest, most scenic country views around and it is littered with charming, quaint towns filled with character. Local towns such as Swaffham and Downham Market are both worth a visit.

What they may know less about is the history of the town. The town has a fascinating history, dating back from its conception back when it was named after a local deer park in the area. The town then suffered two devastating fires in 1581 and 1659 where a number of buildings were damaged. Once the industrial revolution arrived, the town went from strength to strength as business flourished, laying down the foundations for the vibrant Dereham that exists today.
