Generally simply called Downham, Downham Market is a small market town and civil parish in Norfolk, England. Lying, as it does on the edge of the Fens, in the River Great Ouse, the surrounding land is fertile and steeped in agricultural history.
For all intents and purposes of local government, the parish of Downham Market falls within the district of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk. Being as it’s so near to the Medusa Juice stores, it’s easy to go from there to either of Medusa Juice Vape Shops located in King’s Lynn, the bus station kiosk or the main store on Lynn Road. Or you can check out the stores in Peterborough and Norwich just as easily if you’d prefer.
Downham Market was an agricultural centre, developing as a market for the produce of the Fens which also featured a bridge across the River Ouse. During the Middle Ages, it was famed for its butter market, but it was also well known for hosting a notable horse fair. The market is still going and is held Fridays and Saturdays on the town hall car park.
In 1846, the Downham Market railway station opened and it still serves the town. It is on the Fen Line from London to King’s Lynn.
Nelson Academy, is one of the two primary schools located in Downham Market. Situated on Nursery Road, it was originally named Clackclose Community Primary School after Clackclose Hundred. The school opened in 1873 on Snape Lane and is named after Lord Nelson, whom, according to local folklore, attended his first school in Downham Market. The second primary school is Hillcrest Primary.
Out And About
While out and about in Downham don’t forget to take advantage of the rustic and rural charm while enjoying your favourite e-liquids from Medusa Juice. Some great places to visit while there are the Primrose Alpacas & Craft School and the Downham Market Town Hall. Primrose Alpacas & Craft School is a small family run business set in a tranquil farm location just outside Downham Market near the Norfolk/Cambridgeshire border. You can take crafting and jewelry making classes there and really get a feel for the area at the same time.
The Market Town Hall provides a place to visit and learn about the area as well as being a venue for music and comedy acts and other amusements throughout the year.
If you get a chance, don’t miss a visit to the town clock as well. The clock is Victorian and its different than many other clocks you might find in villages, towns or cities throughout England.. It makes a lovely photographic opportunity. The clock was presented to the town by James Scott in 1878. James Scott was a local grocer and draper. There’s also a close named for Scott in Downham Market. The clock attracts visitors from across the globe and once you see it you can easily understand why.
I found it particularly interesting and loved sitting beneath its stateliness while vaping my favorite juices from Medusa Juice.
