Members of the public had an insight into what goes into creating a newspaper as part of an eight-day celebration of the county's heritage.
The Heritage Open Days festival will see almost 300 events around Norfolk including free guided tours, talks, exhibitions and performances.
They included tours at Prospect House in Norwich, the home of this newspaper, by editor David Powles, managing editor Tim Williams and head of news Ian Clarke.
Mr Powles said: 'It was fantastic to open our doors so the public could see our busy newsroom.'
