Wymondham is a delightful market town with a market cross that was re-built after suffering fire damage in 1615 AD; this, as well as 300 houses, suffered severe damage.
There are many fine 17th and 18th century houses scattered about the winding streets and an imposing abbey with two towers, one at each end, which look somewhat unfinished with their plain tops. Inside there is a Norman nave of nine bays stretching for 112 feet. The Norman triforium and the clerestory direct the eye to the magnificent 15th century hammer-beam roof that is adorned with 76 angels and exquisite bosses decorated with leaves. There is a 24 sconced candelabra dating from 1712 AD and the font with its beautiful cover is 19 feet above ground level. The organ dates from 1793 AD and the stone gallery where it stands was built during the Restoration in 1901.
