DOWNHAM MARKET Downham Market is one of Norfolk's oldest market towns, and it can be traced back to Saxon times. Charles I went to Downham following the Battle of Naseby and the inventor of the Manby Rocket, George Manby went to school in the town. The Manby Rocket was fired at ships in trouble and a thin line was attached which could then be used to help save the boat and crew. The town has a good range of shops and a busy market on Fridays and Saturdays. There are many attractive houses and buildings and an unusual gothic black and white town clock. It's in the middle of Hereward the Wake country. There is a main line railway station that goes to London Kings Cross (90mins). It is an ideal place for walking or cycling and the peaceful waterways are excellent for boating and fishing. Nearby at Welney is the famous Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust nature reserve, which is very popular with birdwatchers. In November the Festival of Swans is held where visitors can observe the over-wintering swans.
