Join Jonathan as he takes us on a tour of the infamous Elm Hill in Norwich and a Grade II listed property situated on one of its most prominent points...



Of particular note are the sitting room with fireplace and Georgian sash window, well fitted kitchen with pantry, useful cellar and inner courtyard.

The property is situated on one of the most prominent positions on Elm Hill, which is often used as a film location, due to it being such a pretty medieval cobbled street.



A little bit about Elm Hill's history...

Elm Hill is a historic cobbled lane in Norwich with many buildings dating back to the Tudor period. It is a famous Norwich landmark and is home to Briton's Arms coffee house, The Stranger's Club, Pettus House, The Tea House and the Dormouse Bookshop.


Elm Hill acquired its name from the elm trees that have successively stood in the square since the first quarter of the 16th century when the Churchwardens of St Peter Hungate Church planted the first one. (The tree you see today is not an elm because of the presence of Dutch elm disease in the UK). The parish pump, though not the original, is sited near the tree.

There is no record of the date when Elm Hill first came into being, but there is some evidence for its existence around 1200. Very few buildings now standing in Elm Hill are of an earlier date than 1507, when a disastrous fire destroyed over 700 houses in Norwich. The Britons Arms was the only building to survive, so is much older.

Although it may not be immediately apparent today, the North side of Elm Hill runs parallel to the river Wensum and in the past many of the merchant houses had their own quays. During the 15th and 16th centuries Elm Hill and the river were important commercial thoroughfares.

It has been used as a location for TV and film products, most notably for the 2007 film Stardust and more recently Netflix's 2019 film Jingle Jangle.
