Norwich Heritage Economic and Regeneration Trust (HEART) has once again teamed up with Norfolk Record Office to offer a course which makes a journey through the archives on 12 of the city's most iconic heritage buildings.
The course, entitled Norwich 12: The City's Built Heritage in the Archives, is an opportunity to learn about and use original documentary sources relating to the 12 buildings and their historic sites: Norwich Castle, Norwich Cathedral, The Great Hospital, The Halls - St Andrew's and Blackfriars', The Guildhall, Dragon Hall, The Assembly House, St James Mill, St John's Roman Catholic Cathedral, Surrey House, City Hall and The Forum.
An introductory session will set the scene on all 12 buildings and there will be guided tours of each building according to demand from participants, all of which will be included in the course fee of £50.
Course tutors Tom Townsend, Frank Meeres and Sheree Leeds will deliver the course which will run on Tuesdays at 6pm for seven weeks from Tuesday 23 September 2008 in the Archive Centre at County Hall (one session to be held in Surrey House on Surrey Street). HEART may be able to offer single sessions at £10 each depending on demand.

Michael Loveday, Chief Executive of HEART said: "Back by popular demand, we are once again offering the opportunity for people to delve a little deeper into the rich and fascinating histories of some of the city's most outstanding heritage buildings."
