Approached from the west across wide acres of flat Fenland, Downham Market lies ahead on the first high ground.
Here our prehistoric ancestors had dry land, safe from flooding, on which to build their homes, raise their cattle and crops, and still enjoy the wealth of fish, eels and wildfowl from the fens.
Through exhibitions and displays the Heritage Centre tells the story of the area and its people through the ages.
Thursdays to Saturdays 10am - 4pm
