The website for alternative Norwich and the Free Land of Albion.
Norwich was famed for its Argyle Street squats but the local squatting movement first developed in the 1970s era of slum clearances.
Several communes were developed to try out alternative lifestyles.
Bristow's, Freewheel and the Scientific Anglian and local history in Norwich
From Donovan performing on a hay bale to the "medieval brigands" of the Peace Convoy.
The Gala Ballroom and West Runton Pavilion brought some of the best bands right into our sweaty, tattoed hands.
Vietnam, Biafra, the Queen, Surrealism, sit-ins and banned from the pubs.
The music, the drugs and the busts.
A cornucopia of rubbish
Norch explores the history of Norwich counterculture from the 1960s. There are pages about squats, alternative bookshops, Albion Fairs, communes and cultures of resistance.
