NORWICH, ST JULIAN'S CHURCH,
AND CARROW PRIORY
r download GoogleEarth and ask it to
show you Norwich, U.K., and zoom in until you are walking down
Rouen Road and Julian's Alley to the Music House (Isaac's
House) on King Street, continuing on to where King Street and
Rouen Road join, keep going past the ruined medieval wall
plastered together with cobble stones just as we see in the
Luttrell Psalter for Constantinople (which is really
portraying Norwich and her cathedral). until you can go no
further, then turn left until you come to the Unilever
security entrance, and there make an appointment to see what
Jeremiah Coleman called 'Carrow Abbey', really Julian's Carrow
Priory, which Colman's Mustard came to own. My family, the
Quaker Glorneys in Ireland, sold him the mustard secret and
monopoly, which they had obtained from marrying into French
royalty who were escaping the Revolution. The other Quaker
branches of my family, in England at this time, were Fry (a
relative, Norwich's Elizabeth Fry) and Cash. From both St Julian's
Church and from Carrow Abbey one can see how the city is
divided between Castle and Cathedral, glimpsing both imposing
structures. See also Adam Easton's schoolboy drawings of how
to measure the height of these.

Julian’s Church in King Street had almost everything excepting
its north wall and porch completely annihilated by a high
Isaac's House on King Street in Conisford is near St Julian's Church:
Continue down Rouen Road or King Street which join together. And before you get to Carrow Priory you see the ruins of Norwich's city walls. They are clearly identifiable with those in this scene from the Luttrell Psalter, which pretends it is of Constantinople:
those ruined walls walk further, seeing a great ruined mansion
and restored conservatory built by the Coleman family. Go to the
end of that sreet, then turn left, until you come to Unilever.
Ask at security there for an appointment to see Carrow Priory.
It is as in these photographs, the Prioress' House kept
beautiful, the Priory destroyed by Henry VIII, but they have now
built a medieval herb garden from those still growing here from
the days of the nuns and they still market these herbs in oil to
Marks on the bases of
the columns seem to identify the mason as the same who was
responsible for the building of the Infirmary at Norwich
Cathedral Priory, and the Jew’s House (Isaac’s Hall or the Music
House) in King Street.
