The city suffered a big fire in the 19th century. Only a few houses survived and this was one of them. This particular house is also a good example of the use of wire nets invented by Charles Barnad, here in Norwich, in 1844. From Norwich, wire netting expanded all over the world. Among many other uses, wire nets are used for preventing birds from stealing pieces of straw, reeds or any other dried vegetation the roof is made of. "Can you imagine a world without wire netting?" asked the guide who showed us the city.
Nowadys, Briton's Arms is a cosy and unexpensive restaurant.
