Swaffham town sign, depicting the Pedlar of Swaffham, is altered to show "the Tinker of Market Shipborough". Filming of Kingdom in Swaffham has had a positive effect on the local economy.

Market Shipborough is a fictional town and a civil parish set in the English county of Norfolk that is the central location for the ITV series Kingdom. Market Shipborough is fictionally positioned 24.8 miles north north east of the town of Swaffham, 21 miles west of Cromer and 124 miles north north east of London.

Location[edit]

The town is based on the combination of the real Norfolk towns Swaffham and Wells-next-the-sea. The town sign shown depicts the Pedlar of Swaffham.

Also used in the film was Downham Market railway station which was Market Shipborough station. This brought a lot of excitement to the Fens.
