Great Yarmouth was once the home of our great herring fishing fleet that would makee their way down the coast, returning to Great Yarmouth's port with tons of fish. The quay side was in those days filled with open sheds where the fish were prepared.  There were also smoke houses which would produce endless supplies of Yarmouth bloaters and kippers.

It is well worth wandering around the back streets of Great Yarmouth where you will find a wealth of ancient buildings and  sections of the town wall which date from around 1300. The Yarmouth Rows built around the town in the 1200s were deliberately made very narrow some only 27inches wide so as to fit within the town walls.
