Thetford: Rural traditions in the heart of Norfolk

Thetford: Rural traditions in the heart of Norfolk

Many people around the UK who are looking for a way to live a more peaceful kind of life will be turning their attention to more rural properties and the quieter aura that surrounds the towns and settlements that these are situated in.

For people who seek out this way of life, market towns can often provide the perfect place for them to move with their families, and an ideal example of this sort of settlement will be discoverable by those who are seeking out property for sale in Thethord.

Some of the benefits of living in this town of just 22,000 people include the fact it will induce a far calmer and slower way of life than people who have previously lived in large towns and cities may be used to. It also promotes good transport links, with ease of access to A roads and motorways.

In addition to this, Thetford's own railway station offers attractive links on a daily basis to the likes of London and Norwich.

Within the town itself, there is a lot to do for those who want to enjoy the country lifestyle. As well as being in a rural location, which means that there will be a greater opportunity for enjoying walks as a family, there is also a national cycle route, allowing Thetford residents to travel between the town and Gateley near Fakenham on those lovely summer nights.

The town also plays host to a number of annual events. These include an astronomy event, which is so prestigious that it has even seen a visit in the past from the Sky At Night presenter Patrick Moore.

Being centrally located with clear night skies has also led to Thetford becoming the destination for the UK Star Party.

And for those who like history, the town also gives a nod to the past, as it has Priory ruins for people to visit, as well as a number of statues situated around its area.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801456710-ADNFCR
