Book Description

Norwich remained the second largest city in England until the eighteenth century. Its history over the last 450 years is one of exceptional interest. ‘Norwich since 1550’ is a full account of the post-medieval history of the city and covers all aspects of Norwich life, including its population, housing, churches and chapels, politics, work, education, arts, architecture and medical care. It brings out Norwich's individuality and shows how it became the city it is today. While Norwich changed and developed in many ways over the centuries, its textiles could not compete with those of the northern boom towns of the Industrial Revolution. Instead it found a role as a regional and banking capital.
