Boom tower by Carrow Bridge
Boom tower by Carrow Bridge
In the Middle Ages, 12 gates and 40 towers in the defensive wall surrounding the city controlled the main thoroughfares into Norwich, and a pair of boom towers - see > Link and on the river controlled the access by water where the city walls met the River Wensum. The two towers had chains of Spanish iron stretched between them, which could be raised to stop ships wanting to enter Norwich by river. For a view of the boom tower across the river from here see > Link.
