MELTON PARK Melton Constable is a small village with local shops including a butcher, a general store/post office and a garage. The village also has a primary school and a doctor's surgery. The village is between Holt and Fakenham. Melton Constable was developed in the 1880s as a railway town. It was at the junction of four railway routes crossing Norfolk, and features the robust brick built terraces typical of railway towns of that era. With the closing of the railways the village settled back into its rural and agricultural backdrop. It has two churches, one Norman with grandiose interiors and what has been described as 'the grandest C18 font in Norfolk.' The other is an interesting construction of corrugated iron built in 1903 for the new town and the railway workers. It's a fine piece of practical architecture and has passed the test of time.
