An excellent evening with our friend Colin Howey who showed us around the Bishops Bridge / Cow Tower area and we had a fascinating time discussing various aspects of Norwich history.

We started at the Red Lion pub, had a walk to Cow Tower and then passed over Bishops Bridge to spend the rest of the evening in Lollards Pit pub, which incidentally, has an excellent outdoor smoking shelter.
