Autumn in Norwich

After 12 years in Norwich we still take great delight in wandering around the city, particularly on sunny autumnal afternoons. We’ll usually set off with a vague plan of ‘heading for the Cathedral’ and see what takes our interest. Today it was a chance to finally go and see the Jarrold Bridge across the Wensum, a ‘J’ shaped footbridge close to St James’ Mill, as well as revisiting a number of old favourites.

Trinity United Reformed Church, Unthank Road, Norwich. Designed by Sir Bernard Feilden.

St Giles, Norwich. Repair work currently being carried out on the tower.

Norwich Cathedral.

Repairs and repointing at Pulls Ferry.

Norwich Cathedral and the Great Hospital, seen from the riverside path along the Wensum.

Jarrold Bridge. A small but rather wonderful new footbridge across the Wensum designed by Ramboll.

Quay Side, River Wensum. Middle Saxon Norwich got going here (and on the other bank). They’d have probably enjoyed a J-shaped bridge too.
