  View of Tuesday Market Place, Kings Lynn, Norfolk, England   King's Lynn.

King's Lynn dates from the early 10th century and boasts two market places of which this, Tuesday Market Place is the larger of the two and is currently used as a car park.

The church spire showing above the buildings is that of St. Nicholas' Chapel and it is easily the largest chapel we've ever seen.

  View of Kings Lynn from across the river, Norfolk, England   King's Lynn.

King's Lynn was once an important port on the River Great Ouse just before the river enters the Wash.

It is easy to see, from this vantage point on the far side of the river, the Custom House with the little white tower on the roof, to the left of centre, and the two towers of the large minster church to the right of centre.

St. Margaret's Church or King's Lynn Minster was built by the Normans but only parts of that building survive in the internal arches of the west towers and at the base of the southern one outside. The church was rebuilt in the 13th century with alterations in the 15th century.

It is not often that one sees a parish church on such a grand scale.

The space to the left is Saturday Market Place.

Nelson Street is a good example of the numerous narrow streets with attractive historic buildings in the town. The junction just visible ahead is very near both the Minster and the Quayside.
