To start with named Lynn or Lin (and later as Bishop's Lynn), the busy market town of King's Lynn, Norfolk was at one time one of the more important sea ports in Britain. It today has a population of about 43,000 and draws in quite a lot of sightseers, who go to absorb the history of this memorable place and to get pleasure from its numerous fine attractions and events. The name "Lynn" comes from the Celtic word for "pool or lake" and refers to the fact that the area was previously engulfed by a significant tidal lake.

The town of King's Lynn is found upon the Wash in North-West Norfolk, that giant bite from England's east coast where King John is thought to have lost all his gold and jewels in the early thirteenth century. He had been treated to a feast by the landowners of Lynn (which it was named at this time), then a prosperous port, but was caught by a nasty October high tide as he headed westwards over perilous mud flats towards Newark and the treasure was lost forever. Soon after that, John passed away of a surfeit of lampreys (or a surfeit of peaches), subject to which narrative you believe. At this time the town is a natural hub, the route for commerce betwixt the East Midlands and East Anglia, the railway terminus of the Ely, Cambridge, London main line, and the bridging point which joins 'high' Norfolk stretching toward Norwich in the east, and 'low' Norfolk, the flat fens and marsh lands south of the Wash.

Kings-lynn-river-great-ouseKing's Lynn's royal associations tend to be much stronger in these modern times in comparison with King John's days. Just a few kilometers toward the north-east you will come across Sandringham, a private estate owned by the Queen. The town itself lies mainly on the east bank of the River Great Ouse estuary. Lots of the streets around the Great Ouse, notably the ones close to the twin towers of the St Margaret's Church, remain very much the same as they were a couple of centuries ago.

If the town has a focal point it would likely be the historical Tuesday Market Place into which King Street leads, in particular in modern times since the old Corn Exchange has been transformed into a significant centre of entertainment. Almost all of the structures here are Victorian or earlier. These include the beautiful Duke's Head Hotel, erected in 1683, and a grade II listed building since 1951, the Corn Exchange (1854) and the Globe Hotel (first built in 1650).

King's Lynn History - Possibly at first a Celtic community, and clearly settled in Anglo Saxon times it was detailed just as Lun in the Domesday Book (1086), and controlled by Bishop Almer of Elmham. The town was to be known as King's Lynn in the sixteenth century, and had previously been termed Bishop's Lynn (and Lynn before that), the Bishop's aspect of the name was assigned as it was once owned by a Bishop, who established a Benedictine priory there in the late eleventh century, and it was this Bishop who first granted the town the ability to hold a weekly street market in 1101. It was in addition at roughly this time period that the St Margaret's Church was erected.

The town slowly and gradually evolved into a vital commerce hub and port, with goods like grain, salt and wool exported from the port. By the arrival of the 14th C, Bishop's Lynn was among the principal ports in Britain and a lot of trade was done with the Hanseatic League (Baltic and German traders), with the Hanseatic Warehouse being erected for them in fourteen seventy five.

Bishop's Lynn suffered two substantial calamities in the fourteenth century, firstly in the shape of a great fire which wiped out a great deal of the town, and secondly in the shape of the Black Death, a terrible plague which resulted in the the loss of about fifty percent of the town's inhabitants during the years 1348 and 1349. In 1537, at the time of Henry 8th, Bishop's Lynn came under the control of the monarch rather than a bishop and it was thereafter called King's Lynn, one year later Henry also closed the Benedictine Priory during his Dissolution of the Monasteries (1536-1541).

Through the Civil War (1642 to 1651), King's Lynn actually fought on both sides, early on it endorsed parliament, but eventually swapped sides and was seized by the Parliamentarians when it was under seige for three weeks. During the next couple of centuries King's Lynn's standing as a port decreased together with the downturn of wool exports, whilst it did still carry on dispatching grain and importing iron, pitch and timber to a lesser degree. The town of King's Lynn furthermore affected by the growth of western ports like Liverpool and Bristol, which boomed after the Americas were discovered.
