History

Early

Whilst it is believed that there has been some form of habitation at King's Lynn for well over a thousand years it was not until St Margaret's Church was founded in 1101 by Bishop Herbert de Losinga that the town started appearing on records.

The town went into decline after this period, and was only rescued by the relatively late arrival of railway services in 1847 - with services mainly provided by the Great Eastern Railway (subsequently London and North Eastern Railway) and its fore-runners, and by the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway, which had its headquarters in the town at Austin Street, and an important station at South Lynn (now dismantled) which was also its operational control centre.

Geography

King's Lynn as viewed from across the River Great Ouse

King's Lynn is situated mainly on the east bank of the River Great Ouse close to the point where it flows into the Wash, some 35 miles (55 km) north-east of the city of Peterborough, 44 miles (70 km) west of the city of Norwich, and the same distance north of the city of Cambridge. London lies about 112 miles (180 km) to the south.[3][4] The Ouse at Lynn is about 200 metres (220 yd) wide, and is the outfall for much of the drainage system that created the Fens (systematically drained from the seventeenth century onwards). It flows into the Wash, a bleak landscape of saltmarsh, shifting sandbanks and tidal flows. The much smaller, River Gaywood also flows through the town joining the Great Ouse at the southern end of South Quay close to the town centre.

It also has two impressive churches: St. Margaret's (also on the Saturday Market Place) and St Nicholas' Chapel - the latter built close to the newer Tuesday Market Place, at the heart of a massive Georgian expansion and one of the finest public squares in England.

Currently huge plans are underway to regenerate the entire town. King's Lynn has undergone a multi-million pound regeneration scheme. In 2005 the Vancouver Shopping Centre, originally built in the 1960s, was refurbished as part of the town centre regeneration project (which is planned for 'further' extension) which also saw a new £6 million multi-storey car park built, which has won several awards. And to the south of town a huge swathe of brown-field land is being transformed into a housing development (including contemporary apartments lining the River Nar), a business park, parkland, a school, shops and a new relief road in a £300 million+ scheme. The town's college will also be moving to this area (at a cost of £100 million) along with a possible Anglia Ruskin University campus. A 250-berth marina, surrounded by apartments, hotel, shops, bars and restaurants is also planned.

King's Lynn has always been a centre for the fishing and seafood industry (especially inshore prawns, shrimps and cockles). There have also been glass-making and small-scale engineering works (many fairground and steam engines were built here), and today it is still the location for much agricultural-related industry including food processing. There are a number of chemical factories and the town retains a role as an import centre. It is a regional centre for what is still a sparsely-populated part of England.

Every year on St Valentine's Day, a travelling funfair called The Mart sets up residence in the Tuesday Market Place for roughly a fortnight, after which it moves on to other towns around the United Kingdom. Traditionally, this is the first funfair in the Showmen's calendar where new rides are tried out and old favourites brought out from winter storage. 500 years ago, Lynn had two marts and these were importaint trading fairs which would attract visitors from as far afield as Italy and Germany. Over the years trading fairs became less important and the Mart's nature changed from a trading fair to a funfair. It also became an annual event. Also upon the Tuesday Market Place, the town holds several "Vehicle Shows" where the local car dealers display their offers.
