Claimed to be the largest village in the county, the area backs onto the marshland of West Norfolk, where King John’s crown jewels were said to be lost back in 1216.

Terrington St. Clement

Today the community comes together to make the most of the 14th century church, a primary and secondary school and everyday conveniences. The village has various shops, two doctors’ surgeries, two pubs, two excellent schools - one primary and one secondary, and the church of St Clement, which is known as the Cathedral of the Fens.

There is a half-hourly bus service to the historic market town of King’s Lynn, which is approximately five miles away and has a good range of shops and superstores. For the keen-golfers there are courses at King’s Lynn, Middleton Tydd St Giles and slightly further away are the challenging links courses of Hunstanton and the Royal West Norfolk at Brancaster.

With Cambridge, Peterborough and Norwich all within an hour’s drive and a direct rail line into London King’s Cross arriving in the capital in just 1 hour 40 minutes, King’s Lynn continues to attract a growing number of professionals seeking an easy commuter route. It’s easy to see the appeal of this central location with a clutch of high street retailers and independent restaurants in the town’s Vancouver Centre. The Majestic Cinema and King’s Lynn Alive Corn Exchange are the place to catch a film or show, or check out what’s on at St George’s Guildhall, the UK’s largest surviving medieval guildhall, today a vibrant arts centre.
