Mother of God, Norwich
To the west of the church is now an anonymous office block; but this is the site of the former Metropole theatre, and a plaque recalls that the Beatles played there at the height of their fame. It is curious to think of the excited teenagers queuing in anticipation past this church. The Christian Science reading room is still next door; but as so often one denomination has given way to another, and the cosmopolitan character of modern Norwich makes its mark, as it has done for centuries of course.
Simon Knott, November 2005
