This map has been produced to highlight and promote the variety of independent shops and eateries in Diss.

It lists all of the 70 plus businesses which are found in the historic part of the town known as the heritage triangle and the roads or yards you can find them in.

John Atkinson, who with his wife Juliette owns and runs Fredricks Fine Foods in Norfolk House Yard, designed the map on behalf of the Diss Heritage Traders.

The group consists of shop keepers and traders and aims to protect, advance and develop the area known as the heritage triangle, into a shopping experience.

Mr Atkinson was chosen to create the A5 leaflet - which took three months to complete - because he was a designer who had his own business in London for more than 40 years.

He contacted all the traders to get the correct information about them before photographing all the shops.

He said: 'Diss is a picturesque, thriving market town and the Heritage Triangle is an area of unique independent shops and services, a wonderful mixture of hidden treasures in the yards and around the streets of the Triangle
