I happened to find myself in the city today for a lunch date with some friends (when does anything I do not include food?) and feeling quite full afterwards (it probably wasn't totally necessary for us to get two large starters and main courses) I suggested we take a quick stroll around the Cathedral area before heading back to the car.
Although we walked around/past Norwich Cathedral we didn't go in - something I haven't done since a school trip in middle school! I don't even really know if you're allowed to just wander in.
Norwich Cathedral was built in 1096 (that's when they started it anyway) and the work commenced in 1145. It's spire, measuring at 315 ft is the second tallest in England (after Salisbury, I believe) despite it having to be rebuilt after being struck by lightening in 1169.
We also stopped to pay our respects at Edith Cavell's grave. A nurse during the First World War, Edith Cavell was executed by the German Army for helping both British/French soldiers and German soldiers to safety. She was originally buried in Belgium where she died, but was later moved to her home county.
I don't actually know what this last picture is of, but I quite liked the building so I snapped away anyway.
So that was my little after lunch stroll. Hope you enjoyed having a peak at another area from my home city!
