Norwich Streets and Alleys (1), Norwich, Norfolk, England
On a bend on Elm Hill stands the Briton's Arms (the white thatched building), once the oldest inn in Norwich, but now a charming coffee-house and resturant, which has half-timbered walls and a thatched roof. We thoroughly recommend this for lunch!
Outside the Briton's Arms grew the original Elm tree from which the street took its current name although the original name was Hungate.
Timberhill is another of the colourful and picturesque back lanes not far from the market Place and the castle. At the top of the hill is the church of St John the Baptist Timberhill another of Norwich's medieval churches.
Looking along Pottergate from it's outer end towards the city centre with Micawber's Tavern on the right-hand corner of Cow Hill. There are some wonderful street names in Norwich!
This is the junction of Pottergate and St. John Maddermarket at the inner end of Pottergate looking down towards Bedford Street and quite near the market place and castle.
Just to my left is the church of St. John Maddermarket with it's alley through the tower.
