Smiley face

This happy, smiling face, far left, looks out across Castle Meadow from the end wall of the Shirehall buildings, circled. Behind the wall are the holding cells for the adjacent courtroom. In days gone by prisoners would be brought down from their cells in the gaol high up on the mound alongside Norwich Castle and held here while awaiting their trial.

Angel of Peace

At the junction of Castle Meadow, Market Avenue and Agricultural Hall Plain, and only a few paces from the subject of the first item on this page, stands the 1904 memorial to the 310 Norfolk men who lost their lives in the Boer War of 1899-1902. The monument is topped by George E. Wade's striking bronze of a winged Angel of Peace, sheathing her sword upon the cessation of hostilities.
