Norwich Market, after hours.

I like wandering through markets after hours. There’s something desolate and slightly ghostly about it. The next morning, everything is back in full swing. Yet, at night – or even in the late afternoon, as here in Norwich – the closed stalls has a very different feel.

I wonder if it felt the same in the 11th century. That’s when Norwich Market, or Norwich Provision Market, was founded. It has been in operation at the same site ever since.

Where is Norwich Market?
