Streets of Norwich – Plumbers Arms Alley

Part of my Streets of Norwich project….

Located off of Princes Street, this small alley connects to Waggon and Horses Lane, taking its name from the Plumbers Arms pub which traded between the early nineteenth century and 1881.

The pub building still stands and is now trading as a restaurant, which doesn’t seem to make much of the structure’s heritage in their communications. But, the building is of importance, it has two undercrofts with one from the fifteenth and the other from the sixteenth century and it was originally constructed (albeit much changed since) in the fifteenth century as a residential property.

Norfolk Museums Service have this drawing in their collection which was created by Percy Stimpson, looking back towards Princes Street.
