Lion and Castle Yard Timberhill This small building is formed from two of the very few surviving cottages built in the 17th century and once common in the city. One has been restored with its original roof of reed thatch. They may have been lived in by weavers. From the 14th to the 19th centuries Norwich was famous for it's textiles - "Norwich stuff" - of woollen cloth, worsted and silk made on looms in the weavers' own houses.
