situation: Hingham is a delightful small South Norfolk market town with many interesting historical features, in particular its association with one of Americas' greatest presidents, Abraham Lincoln. The town being the birthplace of his grandfather who left for the 'New World' with the Pilgrim Fathers in the 17th Century. The town was a well to do place in the 17th & 18th Centuries and its prosperity at the time is reflected in the attractive Georgian town houses which surround the market place. The subject property was a good example with its attractive 'Dutch' Gables and prominent position next to the historic White Hart Coaching Inn.
The 'town' may be more accurately described as a large village, but one which still maintains its popularity and prosperity with a useful selection of shops, school and doctors surgery, making it self sufficient in basic amenities. With the market towns of Watton, Attleborough, Wymondham and Dereham a short drive away, it is a pleasant place to live especially as it lies only some 14 miles south west of Norwich and within easy reach of the University of East Anglia, bupa Hospital, Norwich Science Park and Norwichs' University Hospital.
