  • You missed one - all the bus times on Tombland covered up by closure notices. A bit difficult for the visitor (didn't ask where from - too embarrassed!) to find his X29 Fakenham bus. Could only happen in Norwich - you couldn't make it up (to quote a well national journalist), and yes I have sold my house in Norwich (stc).
