This small building is formed from two of the very few
surviving cottages built in the 17th century and once
common in the city. One has been restored with its
original roof of reed thatch. They may have been lived in
by weavers. From the 14th to the 19th centuries Norwich
was famous for it's textiles - "Norwich stuff" - of
woollen cloth, worsted and silk made on looms in the
weavers' own houses.
