Local History and Geography Week- Visit from The Norfolk Records Office

We have been very lucky to have a visit from a local history expert, who brought copies of records about Bressingham, including maps, photographs, Census information, Trade Directories and transcripts of these, to enable us to read them more easily. 

There were lots of activities, that helped us to understand what life was like at the start of the twentieth century- about 1900:

What were houses like?
What were families like?
How many people lived in houses together?
How old were people?
What were their jobs?
Where would you go to buy soap, Easter cards, ginger beer, wheels, and many other things?
Where were these places that you could go to buy things in or near to Bressingham?
