An event celebrating a best-selling novel featuring Norfolk was used as a backdrop today for a sold-out tour. 

The two-hour Shardlake's Norwich guided walk tour took place in the city with guide Paul Dickson.   

Its inspiration was C. J. Sansom’s best-selling novel Tombland, featuring Tudor lawyer Matthew Shardlake’s visit to the city at the time of Kett’s Rebellion in 1549.  

The event started and finished at the Maid’s Head Hotel. 

There was also a collection at the end of the tour for charity Norfolk and Waveney Mind, which raised £98.
