A lovely if bracing walk ...

... around the Cathedral found us at Pulls Ferry one of the most photographed and painted sites in the fine City of Norwich. An ideal 'go to' spot on a sharp Autumn morning!

One of the Norwich landmarks. It is a flint building and was once a 15th-century watergate. It was the route for the stone used to build Norwich Cathedral. The stone came from France up the rivers Yare and Wensum. A canal, specifically built by the monks, used to run under the arch,
