Walking in the Footsteps...
Pictured here, a fascinating little monograph - indeed, to the best of my knowledge, the first ever Norwich Cathedral guidebook. With its lovely hand-made textured paper, and deeply embossed title page, being published in 1785, this may even have been once held by Cornelius Hump, Esq. himself!
Here is a sample of what lies therein...
In a similarly 'laborious Antiquarian' manner, members of The Ragged Society of Antiquarian Ramblers are currently planning an excursion to the cathedral, with a mind to walking the spaces once described by Mr. P. Browne. We anticipate that comparing the building between now and then will prove to be most interesting exercise. Naturally, once we have completed this learn-ed perambulation, we will be sharing our findings here.
