This greyscale image depicts the Edith Cavell Public House in Norwich, close to the Cathedral of Norwich, 7 Tombland, Norfolk NR3 1HF. England U.K.
The Edith Cavell bears the name of Norfolk’s famous war heroine, Edith Cavell, who was shot by a firing squad in 1915 for helping British and Allied soldiers escape from German-occupied Belgium.
Edith Cavell, a Swardeston-born nurse, is buried on the grounds of Norwich Cathedral and a statue of her stands on Tombland.
The Edith Cavell was originally three bars and a retail store believed to be the Tombland Stores up to (1879) and then the Army and Navy stores from 22nd July 1879. Edith Cavell opened in 1981. Coles Breweries briefly owned the pub from 2005-2007 before it reverted back to the Edith Cavell.
It’s believed that a tunnel runs under the Edith Cavell that can be accessed from the main bar; however, it’s sealed off from the general public due to safety regulations. This area of Norwich is well-known for its tunnels, most of which were used to transport goods around the Tombland area.
