Near the south-east corner of The Wash the town of Lynn was first recorded in the early 10th century when the Bishop of Thetford began the first medieval town there by commissioning the building of St. Margarets Church and authorising a market. Later it came under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of Norwich and became known as Bishop's Lynn.

During the reign of Henry VIII it was surrendered to the crown and it then assumed the name of Kings Lynn which it retains to this day but is still generally known as Lynn by the locals.

We have just, today, returned from a four day trip to that very town which included visits to other nearby places including a moated manor house, a castle, a striped cliff and a whopping great lump. I will, if you all behave yourselves, post accounts of our travels with the occasional pic. smilies
