In 1960 Dr John Sapwell published his History of Aylsham, which became the classic work about the Town. No one volume though, however worthy, could ever encompass the whole life of such a centre, from its mediaeval beginnings through to today. Aylsham’s houses as well as its inhabitants each have their own histories to unravel. This book digs deeper into the impact of the legal profession and it impact on Aylsham and its houses.
