So, I thought, for this week’s #2018picoftheweek why not take a piccy of the city …
To the left is Norwich castle built by the invading Normans. The church beside it (moving to right-ward) is St Peter Mancroft, founded by the Breton Ralf de Gael, Earl of Norfolk and Suffolk under William the Conqueror (until he got above himself and was exiled in 1075). The red brick tower belongs the C20th city hall. In the foreground is Norwich cathedral founded in 1096. And just visible off to the right is the Victorian Gothic Revival St John the Baptist Catholic cathedral.
Overall, I submit this for the #2018picoftheweek title: What a View!
And for those with an interest, the same-ish view, taken somewhat earlier (coudn’t find the date but I’m guessing late C18th)
