Despite many shops and institutions coming and going over many years, St Nicholas Street in Diss has looked more or less the same for a very long time.

This picture, taken in November 1971, shows the street, which is now a major part of Diss Heritage Triangle, almost five decades ago.

Those with sharp eyes will notice that the building now occupied by the No 11 pub next to the Corn Hall was called The Two Brewers, established around the 1770s. This pub eventually became Nutbush restaurant, before a brief revival as The Two Brewers, before opening as the No 11.

In 1971 The Two Brewers was owned by Norfolk craft brewery Lacons.
