The History Of Great Yarmouth

Great Yarmouth has been the site of human settlement from at least the Roman Invasion of Great Britain, with evidence of a Roman fort situated at the mouth of the River Yare. King John granted a charter to Great Yarmouth in 1208, which gave the region special trading rights. Over the years, various important additions were made to Great Yarmouth including a hospital during the reign of King Edward the First and a Grammar school in the sixteenth century. Being located by the sea meant that a thriving fishing industry soon grew up in the area. By the early eighteenth century, Yarmouth became particularly associated with the fishing of herring, a staple food for many people. Sadly in 1845 the town was the location of a terrible disaster : children had gathered on a bridge to watch the sight of a clown in a barrel being pulled down the river by geese. The bridge collapsed and 79 children drowned. In addition, during both World Wars, Great Yarmouth was the target of aerial attacks and bombings. During the Second World War, a large proportion of the town was destroyed. However, nearly two thirds of the old town with its ancient wall did survive, as well as the collection of lanes known as The Rows.
