WICKMERE Wickmere is situated approximately 8 miles from the Georgian former market town of Holt which was first mentioned in the Domesday Book(1086) when it was credited with five water mills, a market and its own Port of Cley, which was attached to the Holt Manor. In 1708 the great fire of Holt destroyed much of the town centre, which accounts for the Georgian architecture found in the town today. The centre of the town enjoys a wide variety of shops, restaurants, antique shops, galleries and individual boutiques. The town is also home to the highly regarded Gresham's Public Prep, Pre-Prep and Senior School with it's outstanding facilities. The popular market town of Aylsham is approximately 7 miles away and holds a market in the square every Monday and Friday and offers a wide selection of amenities including two supermarkets, doctors and dental surgeries, butchers, bakers, hardware shop, schools for all ages and lots more. The North Norfolk coast is just a few miles away and is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty with its mile upon mile of uninterrupted beaches and bird and nature reserves. The cathedral city of Norwich is approximately 16 miles away with access to all major rail links and Norwich International Airport.
