The Gibraltar Gardens 2015

Taken whilst shooting Mile Cross Road Bridge for my Mile Cross series. This isn't technically in Mile Cross so it won't appear in that album. One of Norwich's oldest pubs, it was a Coaching Inn on the northern fringes of Heigham, well outside the City Walls. Heigham Watering is nearby, as is the Dial Corner house, cut in half to accommodate Mile Cross road and it's new bridge across the Wensum.

 

The pub is now closed and up for lease. I had my wedding reception in the Marquee here back in 2002 and it was a lovely day. Sad to see one of Norwich's fine historical buildings standing empty and looking scruffy.
