​ Shardlake’s Norwich

Category: Walking Trails

A Trail taking in the Norwich buildings with which C.J.Sansom's character Matthew Shardlake would have been familiar.

The Norwich Society and the Friends of Kett’s Heights have collaborated to create this self-guided trail so you can explore the scenes described in C.J.Sansom’s latest Tudor crime thriller, Tombland. This trail takes you on a tour from the city centre to the site of Robert Kett’s headquarters taking in many of the buildings lawyer Matthew Shardlake would have entered or seen when he was in Norwich.
