Description

Visitors to Norfolk often wonder at the origin of the name Wymondham, pronounced Wind-um. It simply means a pleasant place on a mound or slope. Poppyland’s booklet on the town provides the curious with information about this remarkable town from earliest times in the Stone and Iron Ages, its Saxon treasure, remarkable two tower medieval church, the Wymondham game that sparked Kett’s Rebellion in 1549 and how it was changed forever by the Second World War.
