This is one of the oldest streets in the city.. Nice to wander along, there are a couple of places to visit, as it was heritage open weekend.. other than that, just admire the old houses and buidings, and a few little shops

A beautiful slice of the past in this very interesting part of Norwich. The streets around this area contain many old buildings and it's nice to see how well preserved they are. The area is close to Norwich Cathedral which is well worth a,visit.
