15th century alabaster panel of nine female saints. Produced in Nottingham, it was probably part of an altarpiece. The panel was gifted to St. Peter Mancroft in Norwich in the mid-18th century.

18th century iron shoe patten found on the Thames foreshore. Pattens were under-shoes designed to be worn outdoors and to lift the wearers and their shoes and ladies’ dresses above the mud and grime of early streets.
