History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Old courtyards and twisty streets lend character to the old market town of Diss, in Norfolk. Designated a conservation area, its mixture of Tudor, Georgian and Victorian buildings adds to its historical importance. One of the two old town centres, Fair Green, shows off its 17th and 18th century cottages and homes. Many homes in the town have tiled roofs. St Mary's Church looks over Mere Street, the shopping area.
