St Edmund's Church and Church Hall
Up the gravel Church Drive (lined with lime trees on one side) where King's Walk meets Church Road.  This is opposite Cannon Tyres, at the end of the 'Great Wall of Downham' -  believe us, you can't miss it...!!

Either in town on a proper car park (off Paradise Road) and walk the short distance up to the Church (300m);
Or on the 'Church Piece' - i.e. field! - at owner's own risk ... this is a rural area, the field can be muddy in wet weather...

Downham Market is on the London King's Cross-King's Lynn line.  Regular service.  King's Lynn 20 minutes.  Ely 20 minutes.  Cambridge 40 minutes.  London 1 hour 20 minutes.

Walking from Downham Market Railway Station (about 3/4 mile).  Turn left out of the station and walk straight up the hill (Railway Road which becomes Bridge Street), through the town centre.

Where Bridge Street meets the High Street (by the Town Clock), cross the road and go up either one of the two passage ways straight ahead (Sounding Alley and Playhouse Yard), both of which lead up to the Church.

Or, for those who require it, a taxi service generally meets the most popular trains.  (At other times you may have to ring for one on arrival at the station.)
