Tucked away in a tiny alley, St Julian's church is a shrine to Julian of Norwich and has been a centre for pilgrimage for centuries. Writer and mystic Julian (also known as Juliana, 1342-c 1429) wrote down her religious visions in a collection called The Revelations of Divine Love, which is unparalleled in English literature for its clarity and depth of perception. Sadly the cell where she wrote the book was torn down in the Reformation, much of the building was reconstructed after WWII.
