Briton's Arms, Elm Hill, Norwich

Description on the kit:
"This thatched house was built in the fifteenth century and is the oldest house in the vicinity, its isolated position having saved it from a week-long fire in 1507 which destroyed all the other buildings in the area. In its time it has been a nunnery, home of a surgeon, wool weaver's cordwainer's and saddlery. It has been recorded as an alehouse called Briton's Arms since 1760 and on delicensing it was presented to the City of Norwich by the brewers and it is now a popular coffee house.
The garden shown alongside the Briton's Arms on this tapestry is part of the churchyard of St.Peter Hungate, which was built at the expense of John Paston and his wife over the years 1402-1460. The church contains ancient stained glass and a fine fifteenth century roof with carved angles. It is now an ecclesiastical museum and brass rubbing center.
Elm Hill was an important commercial center for the weaving industry in medieval times, and has been preserved as a picturesque reminder of days gone by."
