Shirehall, Norwich

The Shirehall is a municipal facility in Market Avenue, Norwich, Norfolk. It is a Grade II listed building.

An early Shirehall was built atop the Norwich Castle mound in around 1270 and rebuilt during the Elizabethan era. The current Shirehall, which was designed by William Wilkins in the Tudor Revival style, was completed in 1823. The design involved a symmetrical castellated main frontage with nine bays facing onto the Market Avenue; the central section, which projected slightly forward, featured an arched doorway, a triple window on the first floor and a shield above the window; there were polygon-shaped turrets at roof level.
