Welcome to Colonel Unthank’s Norwich. Norwich, which was once England’s second city, has a rich past and a good deal of its built environment survives. I am not a historian so rather than write about history head-on I prefer to take a sideways look at things I come across as I wander about town – preferably off the beaten path. Interests include: The Arts & Crafts Movement, The Aesthetic Movement and Thomas Jeckyll, architecture, ironwork, medieval churches (including stained glass and angels), brickwork, flint, The Aesthetic Movement, local architects George Skipper and Edward Boardman, the Norwich School Painters (especially John Sell Cotman), Art Nouveau etc. I hope that some of the randomness and playfulness of my excursions emerges in the posts.
