Norwich lies at the heart of rural East Anglia. It dates back to Saxon times. By 1066 Norwich was the largest walled town in medieval England. Work started on Norwich Cathedral in 1096.It took nearly 200 years to complete the task. As the only natural building material in the area was flint, stone had to be shipped in, mainly from Caen in Normandy. The cathedral was finally consecrated in 1278.
