History of Norwich
The formation of ‘Norwich’ and its complex history is made up from various accounts and not all of them are consistent! However, we are led to believe that in the 11th century, Norwich was the largest city in England after London, and was the capital of the most populous English county until the Industrial Revolution took place, which changed so much of British history!
Between the 5th and 7th Century, the Anglo-Saxons settled in the area now known as Norwich, and formed ‘Northwic,’ ‘Westwic’ and another settlement. It became a thriving focus for trade and commerce whilst under Anglo-Saxon ownership, until 1004 when it was raided and set fire to by a Viking king. The area burnt down.
According to the Domesday Book (1086), Norwich had a population of 5000 – 10000 people, and contained approximately 25 churches. Norwich Castle was built after the Norman conquest (which took place between 1066 and 1087) and not long afterwards (in 1096), the construction of Norwich Cathedral began. This was finally completed in 1145.
Between 1280 and 1340, city walls were built around Norwich, and these walls were larger than those surrounding London (measuring roughly 4 kilometres in total). Norwich had many years of happy trading and growing, but in 1549 a rebellion known as ‘Ketts Rebellion’ took control of Norwich for several weeks. They were thought to have Protestant ties, and became sympathetic to the town’s poor people.
Norwich has often been a place that is associated with different cultural backgrounds, and when the Flemings came to Norwich in the 16th Century (escaping the Spanish persecution), they bought with them textile working techniques and pet canaries which they began breeding in Norwich. Clearly the birds had an impact on the people of Norwich and its culture, as the football team (Norwich City FC) are nicknamed ‘The Canaries.’
The civilisation of Norwich grew from this time, and by the 18th century, the city had poor relief and contained a number of foreign refugees. Disputes, conflict and violence erupted however, largely bought about disputes concerning the political parties known as the ‘tories’ and the ‘whigs.’ In the 20th century, Norwich became famous for shoes, clothing, joinery and aircraft design, as well as chocolate (Caleys). During world war two, the city suffered severe damage caused by bombs – where it was heaviest in 1942. Breweries, shopping areas and factories were hit and destroyed.
Entertainment in Norwich
Aerial Force enjoy serving communities with as much history and culture as Norwich, and are happy to assist in different forms of entertainment and security as required. We install and repair different types of satellite and aerials, helping the community of Norwich stay in touch with their favourite programmes.
When outdoors in the city, there are many other attractions that interest residents and visitors. The cathedral still attracts tourists and residents today – especially those looking to re-connect with their history and culture. Other areas of natural beauty that can be found within Norwich include Eaton Park and Holt Country Park, in addition to Earlham Park. For people who love to visit the arts, Norwich Arts centre is a fantastic way to do this, and the Norwich Theatre Royal and Norwich Playhouse are other theatres.
Norwich is also famous for literary arts, and it became the first English city to be awarded the ‘city of literature’ title by UNESCO, when this was awarded in 2012.
Norwich is a great place to go, to experience bars and clubs and it also had a number of breweries until fairly recently. Nowadays the only breweries to be found in the city are known as ‘microbreweries’ though these have become fashionable around England.
Carrow Road is home to Norwich City Football Club, a club who have the famous celebrity cook Delia Smith as a shareholder. Visitors to Carrow Road can see the team playing in the ‘Championship’ though they have been in the Premiership within the last two seasons.
For residents of Norwich, home entertainment enables them to catch up with their favourite programmes, and watch ‘the canaries’ on Sky, when they are unable to visit Carrow Road. We have a number of services available, and each one is performed by an expert member of our highly-trained team.
