Martham has always been a large and busy village with (presently) a post office, a couple of pubs, a supermarket and a variety of other shops, doctors surgery, pharmacy and more than 30 businesses, three schools, a public library, a large playing field with skate park and multi games area and two duck ponds. In 1300 CE the village had a population of about 1,000, and during the Middle Ages Martham provided the monks in Norwich with wheat, barley and peat. C19 directories list a great number of farmers, fishermen, craftsmen and tradesmen such as grocers, butchers, tailors, drapers, shoemakers, basket makers, wheelwrights, joiners, blacksmiths, millers, brick makers, bricklayers, thatchers, glaziers, wherrymen and watchmakers. Most of the bricks seen in older houses were made locally and are of similar appearance, texture and colour. LinkExternal link
