LITCHAM Litcham is a small village between the market towns of Fakenham and Dereham. It's described in the Doomsday book as 'a market town in the centre of Norfolk' although it's much older than that with Roman roads found nearby. There is a village museum with a Grade II listed underground limekiln, which you can arrange to view. There are walks in the nature reserve on Litcham Common and down the river Nar. The village has a pub, The Old Bull, a butcher, a doctor’s surgery and a post office/general store. There are two schools, a primary, and the very much in demand, Litcham High. There is also a 12th century church, All Saints, which was largely rebuilt in the early 15th century. Litcham is ideally positioned for the Norfolk coast with its miles of unspoilt coastline. The city of Norwich is 26 miles away and has a very convenient local airport for intercontinental gateway flights through Schiphol. There are direct rail links from Norwich to London Liverpool Street. King's Lynn, with a direct rail route to London King's Cross-via Cambridge, is 19 miles away.
