The site and surroundings

The property is an inter war detached property located in the  historic market town of Attleborough located in the county of Norfolk, England. It has a long and interesting history that spans centuries. Here's an overview of the history of Attleborough. The area around Attleborough has evidence of human habitation since prehistoric times. Archaeological discoveries indicate that the region was settled during the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods. Attleborough's history can be traced back to the Anglo-Saxon period when it was known as "Aetelburh." It was part of the Kingdom of East Anglia, and the name "Attleborough" is believed to have derived from the Old English words "aetel" meaning noble and "burh" meaning fortification. After the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, Attleborough came under Norman rule. The town grew around a market that was established in the 12th century, becoming a center for trade and commerce. It was granted a royal charter in 1296, which further bolstered its status. During the Middle Ages, Attleborough prospered as a market town and developed a textile industry, specializing in the production of woollen cloth. The town's location on a major road linking Norwich and London contributed to its growth and economic importance. Attleborough has a strong religious history. The parish church of St. Mary the Virgin, originally dating from the 11th century, played a central role in the community. The church underwent several modifications and expansions over the centuries. Attleborough experienced significant changes during the Industrial Revolution, with the development of manufacturing industries such as textiles and engineering. The arrival of the railway in the mid-19th century improved connectivity and further stimulated economic growth. In recent years, Attleborough has seen expansion and development as a residential area. The town has undergone urbanization, with new housing estates and amenities being built to accommodate the growing population. Today, Attleborough is a thriving town that retains its historic character while embracing modernity. It features a mix of historic buildings, including timber-framed houses and Georgian architecture, along with modern infrastructure and facilities. The town's market tradition continues to this day, with regular market days attracting visitors and locals alike. Attleborough's rich history and convenient location make it an attractive place to live and visit in Norfolk.
