Work in progress: the Colegate story

Work in progress: I’m researching the remarkable story of Colegate, in the heart of historic Norwich-over-the-water. Over the centuries its inhabitants have made huge fortunes for our fine city – and occasionally lost them too. It’s been home to Viking raiders, textile merchants and shoe manufacturers. And now it’s reinventing itself for the 21st century.

I’ll be sharing the Colegate story with Norfolk Network, as part of their Colegate Christmas celebrations on 7 December.

Specialist visualiser JC3DVIS has been creating a time-travelling map for me, to help tell the story. Over the next few weeks, in the run-up to the Norfolk Network event, we’ll reveal some of the best bits – but without giving the game away. Watch this space.
