King’s Lynn and West Norfolk is a local government area in the county of Norfolk, with its administrative centre being in King’s Lynn. King’s Lynn is on the coast and has a port, and it is also a market town which was granted its charter to hold weekly markets and have annual fairs in 1101. The town was the first member of Die Hanse in Britain and in 1271 the German merchants of the Hanseatic League were granted certain trading rights; the main staple export was wool. Later the German ships brought fish, iron and wax (among other commodities) to Norfolk and took away cloth, salt and lead. There are many reminders of King’s Lynn’s association with the German merchants and visitors may be surprised to see the Hanseatic flag flying above the Trinity Guildhall, however, the town is a member of the Hanse still.
