Areas linked with Sarah Glover in Norwich. 

St. Laurence Church, St Benedicts Street.
This medieval church in the centre of Norwich was where Sarah Glover’s father was a rector. It was built between 1460 and 1472 and features Edwardian paintings of saints and angels on panels near the altar.

Black Boys’ Yard, Colegate
Sarah and her sisters originally ran a school in Black Boys’ yard. The yard is named Black Boy after the Black Boy pub which is believed to have been there in the early 1760s. The pub was later re-invented as the Merchants of Colegate. 

There is a plaque commemorating her on the outside wall of the pub.
