Artist's Description

The name ‘Tombland’ has nothing to do with tombs, as it appears to be of Saxon origin, and denotes an open space. The original town of Northwic grew from this area in Saxon times and was a major marketplace during that period. The ‘crooked house’ property (shown in this photograph) is opposite the Erpingham Gate, close to the Maid’s Head and leans at a precarious angle. Its most famous occupant was Augustine Steward, three times Norwich mayor and city MP.
Tombland today remains an attractive open space, surrounded by restaurants and bars.
