Historic England will host public talks at King's Lynn Town Hall to share the findings of the research, which are revealed as Lynn celebrates its first year as a Heritage Action Zone.

Chapel Street Car Park by Sarah Newsome

It is believed that the area of Chapel Street car park was occupied from the late 13th century and by the 16th century it was densely developed with timber-framed, and possibly stone, buildings. Many were houses and others were shops where merchants and traders could take advantage of passing trade on the busy route between Tuesday Market Place and St Nicholas Chapel.

The new insights into the medieval town of King’s Lynn are the result of Historic England going out on site and carefully piecing together new and existing research from the Norfolk Historic Environment Record and the King’s Lynn Borough Archives.

The research reports are also available to download from
