Excerpt from Peter's Book "The Divided Village" By Peter Cox: Courtyard Publishing: ISBN 0-9524810-5-7

The village of Upper Sheringham



The name Sheringham is of Scandinavian origin and has the meaning The Ham of Scira’s people. It is thought that Scira may have been a Viking warlord who was given the land as a reward for his performance in battle. The village is located a little south west on higher ground above the town of Sheringham. The village is bound to the west by the National Trust property of Sheringham Hall and its estate. To the south is the hill line known as the Cromer Ridge. The village is known locally as "Upper Town" as compared to the town of Sheringham (town) itself.

The wait is over. Read the Divided Village available at Peter's Bookshop.  See instore for more details.
