Norwich case study
This case study is a partnership between the Parliamentary Archives, Parliamentary Outreach and Norfolk Record Office. It was set up following the launch of the People and Parliament: Connecting with Communities project in July 2009.
We explore the impact of Parliament on local communities and find out how people have influenced Parliament.
We do this by researching material in the Parliamentary Archives at Westminster, as well as records held locally by regional archives.
