HOW has Thetford changed in the last 250 years?

That is the question being answered at the Ancient House Museum as maps of the town dating back to 1740 go on display.

The new exhibition, Mapping the Town, is showing off maps, models, photographs and artefacts that paint a picture of the last three centuries.

Oliver Bone, curator, said: “I personally find maps fascinating and this exhbition is a chance to share my enthusiasm.

“I’m delighted that so many were involved in contributing to the display, to whom many thanks.”

Never before seen finds, including a Roman quernstone used for grinding flour, are on display.

The museum is open from Tuesday to Saturday.
