Welcome to 
Martham Local History Group Website
 
Researching the History of Martham, a busy Norfolk village
surrounded by the Norfolk Broads, 
whilst looking further afield in East Anglia

 
HOW TO FIND US
 
Click View on Google Maps.  Find Repps Road, which links with the A149 one mile south of Potter Heigham. We meet in either the Methodist Church or Martham Village Hall.
 
The Methodist Church is on the left side of Repps Road, opposite Rollesby Road, just before the zebra crossing.  Park on the car park just beyond the zebra crossing, on the right.
 
The Village Hall is a little further along (about 300 yards) on the left of White Street, just past Cornerstone Baptist Church.  There is ample parking to the right of and behind the Hall.
