Blackfriars Tower

A Memory of Great Yarmouth.

I also remember this tower as my Great grandmother, Elizabeth Welham lived under the tower when I was a boy. This would be in the late 1940's/ 1950's. The door to her rooms was just inside the archway and you would take one step down into a small kitchen. It was very dark inside, but homely as granny always cooked cinnamon cake which gave off a lovely smell. She made us lemonade made from sherbet. A few years ago I took my wife to show her this tower, but could not find the door, I think it had been bricked up by preservationalists using the same cobbled stones. I do not remember my great grandfather, George Welham.
