'Norwich 12: A journey through the English city' is a beautifully illustrated guidebook which brings the stories alive of the buildings, which include Norwich Castle, Norwich Cathedral, The Great Hospital, The Halls – St Andrew's and Blackfriars', The Guildhall, Dragon Hall, The Assembly House, St James Mill, The Cathedral of St John the Baptist, Surrey House, City Hall and The Forum.
The book tells a fascinating story about the way Norwich has evolved and about the military, religious, commercial, social and civic factors behind the development of the English city over the last millennium. The guidebook also uses specially commissioned photography and interviews with people connected closely to each building which each give an absorbing insight into an aspect of each building's history or purpose.
