Famous for being the centre of the industrial printing movement during the late 19th Century, the town still has many small printing firms in business around the town.

"We are so pleased we decided to sell our home with The Norfolk Agents. The customer service & communication has been fantastic and considering the concept means the cost is less than the high street estate agents we have been very impressed. We had a tricky sales process with an even more so tricky chain, but it all came together in the end because of the extra mile you go to make it happen. We can't thank you enough."
