The town lies at the southern end of the Wash in North-West Norfolk, that sizeable bite from England's east coast where King John is supposed to have lost all his treasure in twelve fifteen. He had been treated to a feast by the elite of Lynn (as it was known as back then), then a prosperous port, but was caught by a fast rising October high tide as he made his way to the west over hazardous marshes on the way to Newark and the treasure was lost on the mud flats. Shortly after this, John died of a surfeit of lampreys (or peaches), based on which report you read. At this time the town is a natural centre, the route for business betwixt the eastern counties and the Midlands, the railway terminus of the London, Cambridge, Ely main line, and also the bridging point that joins 'high' Norfolk extending in the direction of Norwich to the east, and 'low' Norfolk, the flat fens and marsh lands to the south of the Wash.
