A Norfolk history buff has created a video that reveals how Norwich city centre looked as far back as the 1700s.

The video, made by James Fox, from Aylsham, winds the clock back as it shows photographs from 2018 to 1905.

It then shows illustrations of the market from 1855 to 1788.

The most historic image, which depicts the city centre 231 years ago, is almost unrecognisable as the Norwich current city dwellers know.

Though the video reveals hundreds of years of Norwich market it doesn’t reach as far as the beginning, as the market was first founded in the eleventh century and has been a bustling centre of trade ever since.
