A neglected city wall has been given a new lease of life thanks to a project hoping to brighten up the city.
The wall on Barrack Street in Norwich was given a facelift by street artists The Toasters at the start of September.
The project is part of the Get Walls initiative, a collaboration between Moosey Art, which helps to promote local artists, and clothing brand SHhhh.
Frazer Bailey, managing director at Moosey Art, organised the project with Sam Harrons of SHhhh.
'We started talking about how we didn't have any start art in the city, so we came up with this project.
