We meet in Martham Methodist Church which is on the left side of Repps Road, opposite Rollesby Road, just before the zebra crossing. Repps Road comes in from the A149. The symbol above is for NR29 4AH, the nearest we can get but slightly to the east of the church - use this post code in your SatNav.

Park on the car park just beyond the zebra crossing, on the right.

MARTHAM STORIES IS ONLINE

This series of short films about the recent History of Martham can be easily viewed by searching Martham Stories. Many feature long-standing residents recalling their childhood in the village. They were produced with the help of students at Flegg High School who created the artwork, did the filming and conducted several of the interviews.

Under Research Links you will find a list of other interesting and useful contacts.
