Record repositories in Norfolk

Hi all
I've recently begun researching my Lowden and Davey ancestors. I have a John Lowden born Clenchwarton abt 1800, married Sarah Coker (born abt 1800 West Walton) in 1834 in Mumby (Lincs). I think he may have had an earlier marriage, as some of the children were born before 1834.

According to census returns (1851 onwards) his chldren were:
Sarah b. abt 1829 Walpole St Peter
Robert b. abt 1830 Mumby cum Chapel, Lincs
Mary Ann b. abt 1835 Mumby ditto
William Coker b. 1838, Salmonby, Lincs
Susan (or Susanna) b. abt 1840, ditto
Leonard, b.& d. 1841

I haven't been able to go further back than John & Sarah but will be visiting UK (from Australia) in March - and hoping to visit the Norfolk Records Office in Norwich, and the village of Clenchwarton and surrounding villages. My question is, are there any other repositories of parish records I should visit in Norfolk? Also, on a practical level, is the March weather likely to permit comfortable driving or would trains & bus be a better option??? (It's over 30 years since I've been back, but I do remember the weather can be a bit on the bleak side..)

Would be grateful for any information
