The Norwich Lanes colouring book by artist Bev Coraldean. Maddermarket Theatre.

A limited edition colouring book capturing some of the area's beautiful architecture has been released just in time for Christmas.

The city's stocking filler for all ages was created by Beverley Coraldean, 31, from the lanes. Inspired by the love of her home, she said: 'I really like drawing buildings around this area and the community has been really supportive.'

The Birdcage, a bar on Pottergate, features in the book alongside the green where whatever the weather people can be found enjoying fish and chips.

Earlier this year the artist took part in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, sketching landmark buildings on the walls and had a pleasant surprise when people joined in.

She said: 'It amazed me how many adults came and spent so much time colouring them in. That was when the I thought I had to do a colouring in book.'

The Colour-In Norwich Lanes book costs £5 and is available from shops scattered throughout the area between the market and the River Wensum.
