PULHAM ST. MARY MAGDALEN is a populous village near the main road, between Scole and Norwich, 4½ miles N.W. of Harleston, 15 miles S. of Norwich, and about a mile from the Tivetshall Station of the Eastern Union Railway. Many of the houses are scattered about on fine healthy sites, and the surrounding scenery is picturesque and diversified. Pulham once had its weekly markets, and its manufactures of hats, coverlets, and dornicks, but these have long been obsolete, and the only manufacture carried on now is that of gloves. A cattle FAIR is annually held on the third Thursday in May. The parish comprises an area of 2956 acres, and the population in 1841 was 1155. Post-Office, at Elizabeth Palmer's. Letters delivered at 9.30 a.m. and despatched to Norwich and all parts, via Harleston, at 4.30 p.m.
