Kett's Heights self-guided food trail.
From Roman "celery" to the site of a WW2 pig club, download and follow our trail to discover the surprising range of food associated with Kett's Heights.
This steeply terraced site has been home to medieval monks, Robert Kett and his followers in 1549, the 19th century Gas Works, WW2 "dig for victory", and a modern herb garden. Our trail takes you through the winding paths to discover the evidence left by each era and the many food plants that are available today. You can finish your tour at the viewpoint which offers a breathtaking panorama overlooking Norwich.
